The Grande Ronde Hospital Foundation has launched an exclusive auction of Eric Valentine - Praise Photography photo prints ready to display!

The Foundation has received six prints of Mr. Valentine's work on various mediums, with mounting hardware already attached for display. To view these prints and bid, go to This online, silent auction runs until December 22 at 1 PM PST. This time frame will allow for local hand delivery or pickup in the Union County area before holiday gifting. Outside of the county, standard shipping will apply. Bidders will also be able to make a donation in honor of Eric and Meg Valentine for all of their support and care for Grande Ronde Hospital and Northeast Oregon.

Mr. Valentine has generously donated these prints to the Foundation because he feels passionate about local health care for our communities. Eric has previously served on the Grande Ronde Hospital Board of Trustees. Eric and his wife have lived in La Grande for more than 50 years, where he practiced law, served as a trial and circuit court judge in Union and Wallowa Counties, and raised their children. Eric has shared his love of the outdoors via his photography for many decades. Before his retirement, he started Praise Photography to share his art with others. The Valentines have traveled the world, as seen in Eric's photography. You can view his photographs at

Grande Ronde Hospital and Clinics and the Foundation would like to thank Eric and Meg for all of their support and generosity and for helping make this auction event happen.

The Grande Ronde Hospital Foundation has been fundraising for patient care equipment at Grande Ronde Hospital since 1969 and has raised more than 5.2 million dollars. For questions about their fundraising projects or to make a donation, call 541-963-1431 or go to
