The Magruder Hospital Auxiliary’s 59th Annual Charity Ball will take patrons to a time of knights, kings, queens and fair maidens. On Saturday, Feb. 23, the Catawba Island Club will be transformed into "A Medieval Knight."
Chairing the event this year are Matt and Michele Mueller. Michele, who is also President of the hospital's Auxiliary, announced a format change for the event this year.
"With the medieval theme, we made the decision to offer a feast of heavy hors d' oeuvres and desserts throughout the evening, instead of having the usual format requiring seating reservations and a limited dinner selection. The CIC has prepared a menu fit for a king and sure to appeal to a variety of tastes."
The event, which will begin at 7 p.m., is the hospital's largest fundraiser of the year and funds will be used toward the Oncology Clinic renovation which began in January. Local musicians The Junk, a 5-piece cover band known for an eclectic blend of musical styles covering multiple decades of artists, will be performing again this year.
Tickets are $60 per person and can be purchased at Bassett’s Market, Mary’s Blossom Shoppe, Magruder Hospital Gift Shop or National Bank of Ohio in Oak Harbor. Sponsorship information may also be downloaded from the hospital’s website, www.magruderhospital.com. Questions regarding the event, tickets or donations, may be directed to Kerryn Lockhart at Magruder by calling 419-734-3131, extension 3105.
