Country Meadow Village residents star in hospital TV ads
SEDRO-WOOLLEY-The entertainment world was abuzz several weeks ago, when Country Meadow Village hosted a world premiere screen event. Four of the actors attended.
Two new television commercials for United General Hospital, airing locally on cable TV and in some movie theaters, were shown Oct. 25 at the retirement community. The four actors were Country Meadow residents Maria Wood, Pinky Holcomb, Bob Benham and Al Schleef.
The actors posed as patients in different hospital settings and received applause and a special thank-you from the hospital, United General spokeswoman Val Stafford said in an email.
Forty friends and family members gathered to honor the celebrities, watch the commercials and enjoy refreshments, Stafford said.
The spots are playing at the Cascade Mall theaters in Burlington and the Concrete Theatre. The 30-second ads can be viewed on the hospital’s website, www.unitedgeneral.org.
