ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - The CentraCare Health Foundation has received a big estate gift from the late Dan Coborn.
CentraCare Health officials say the $500,986 gift will be used to continue the mission of the Coborn Cancer Center and the legacy left by the former Chairman, President and CEO of Coborn's.
"It is a great honor to present this gift to CentraCare on behalf of my father," said Chris Coborn, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO for Coborn’s, Inc.
"He cared deeply about the community he called home. His life was rooted in the principles of community service and giving back so others may have a brighter future; this is a continuation of that legacy."
In February, the Coborn Family Foundation committed $500,000 to the College of Saint Benedict to support the construction and development of the College Avenue Athletic Fields. The gift was made possible by a generous donation from Dan ’52 and Mabel Coborn.
Dan Coborn died on March 15th at the age of 86.
