WMH Auxiliary 76th Annual Mistletoe Ball “You Gotta Have Heart”
(Honesdale, November 14, 2016) The Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is proud to announce its 76th annual Mistletoe Ball on Saturday, January 21st, 2017 at Silver Birches in Tafton. This traditionally elegant event will include cocktails, dinner, and dancing to the live music of the Groove Train Band. Proceeds will benefit the hospital’s cardiac rehabilitation unit, specifically new equipment and an updated telemetry system. The theme of the ball is “You Gotta Have Heart.”
The event will include donated raffle prizes from overnight stays to jewelry, wine and more. The cash bar starts at 5:30pm, dinner at 6pm and the live music at 8pm.
“It’s always a smashing good time,” says Martha Wilson, co-chair. “It’s usually pretty cold in January, but inside the Silver Birches banquet room, it will be warm and lively. We invite everyone to attend and help their nonprofit community hospital.”
Wayne Memorial opened a cardiac catheterization laboratory, the Heart & Vascular Center, in June, and officials say it’s far exceeded expectations—and saved many lives. The cardiac rehabilitation unit, which helps anyone who has experienced a heart event get back on their feet and stay healthy, is busier than ever, adds Wilson. “That’s why we chose the cardiac rehab department as our beneficiary this year. With our help, patients will experience enhanced personal care and faster recovery.”
Tickets are $85 a person. Call 570-226-9750 for more information or to make reservations.
