Dunked for a Good Cause

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - Imagine getting to dunk your boss in a water tank while raising money for a good cause. 

That was what employees of Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center did Friday.

The hospital kicked off its six-week campaign to raise money for the March of Dimes. Last year hospital officials raised $13,000 for the charity. This years' goal is $15,000.

Friday's event was the 'March of Dimes dunk tank' where people were able to try their luck at dunking their boss or even the CEO for a small donation of course.  

"It just pulls the whole hospital together I think," said Melissa Johnson, a Child Life Specialist at GCRMC. "Getting everyone involved and even bringing some people out from the community and getting their friends dunked or getting their family members dunked. It just brings everyone together and it raises money for such a great cause for our little babies and their families up there." 

The campaign ends with the March for Babies on May 6th, at McKenzie Park.

If you would like to help Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center support the March of Dimes you can do so at 'Boots for Babies' on Saturday, April 22nd at Wicked Wheel in Panama City Beach.
