The Gala Committee at St. Francis Hospital is ‘spreading the news’. The 2010 St. Francis Gala is slated for Saturday evening, February 27 at the Maryville Community Center.
This year, the Committee decided to offer the excitement of the city that doesn’t sleep, New York – New York. The food, fashion, entertainment and music, along with the real feel of New York City scenery and décor are all being planned to leave a lasting impression.
As co-hosts, the St. Francis Hospital Foundation and St. Francis Hospital Auxiliary promote the Gala as a healthy benefit. All proceeds for the 2010 gala are going toward the purchase of the digital mammography machine for the hospital.
These hospital organizations are asking Maryville businesses, residents in the region as well as hospital employees to start making plans by making their reservations to attend the 8th Annual St. Francis Gala. Social hour will begin the festivities of celebrating in the "Big Apple" beginning at 6:30 p.m., an elegant meal will be served at 7:30, a mix of Broadway tunes will entertain guests after dinner, followed by dancing ‘til midnight.
This formal affair (black tie optional) will include the opportunity for people to come dressed in New York style with the option to walk the "Cat Walk". A free photo sitting will be a part of the evening’s event to recapture the fun and enjoyment. A great assortment of silent auction items will be offered for the Gala-going crowd to take advantage of some unique take-home buys.
