Tickets are going fast for the 17th annual Health Foundation Gala. It's your chance to spend an evening in Vegas without having to leave the city.
"Gala Evening in Las Vegas is a perfect theme for fun and excitement, lots of colour and sparkle. It's perfect for a Gala night" says Diane Rusnak, Chair of the Gala Committee. "Our committee is going to have a great time with the decorating!
"The last several Gala evenings have been a tremendous hit, and we are going to improve and build on that success by making Gala better every year. This year Gala Night will feature an Elvis impersonator, fabulous decorations, a live band, and a huge silent auction, and, of course a delicious five course meal."
As well, Mitch Hippsley, of Portraits by Mitch, will be taking complimentary portraits of guests, and this year will also feature a fun and unique 'Vegas' backdrop for the portraits.
Sherring Gold Jewellers is again donating a piece of jewellery for a raffle, there will also be an auction for a trip to Vegas.
"Our band this year will be the Crawdaddies. They do a wonderful job of playing a variety of music and they keep people on the dance floor all night. People love a live band and they like the opportunity to dance," adds Rusnak.
"We are pleased to have Morris Industries returning as our Presenting Sponsor. Morris Industries has been very supportive of our Gala Night, and have been our Presenting sponsors for seven years now.
"In addition to Morris Industries we receive tremendous support from the 40 businesses that donate items for our Silent Auction."
Over the years Gala events have purchased more than $365,000 of important medical equipment for the region's healthcare facilities. This year the proceeds of Gala will go toward the purchase of diagnostic equipment for the Regional Health Centre in Yorkton.
Seating for Gala – which takes place October 20 – will be limited to 320 people. Gala evening has sold out in past years so don't wait to get your tickets!
"We suggest that those planning to attend should get their table organized and order their tickets now."
