The Valentine Ball weekend provided the opportunity to come together two nights in a row for the first time this year, first for the Cocktail Affair and then for the Ball itself.  Proceeds from both evenings went directly to support cancer care right here at home, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for making both events a resounding success!    

Evenings like these take a vast number of volunteers, and we’d like to begin by thanking all of our pre-Ball dinner party hosts.  The dinner parties have always been a special part of the Valentine Ball, a time for new and old friends to gather for delicious meals in gracious venues across the county.   They are the “parties before the party” that we remember as well as the Ball itself, and we are grateful to our hosts for making each one uniquely wonderful!  

We would also like to thank our Valentine Ball committee members and chairs who were full of creative ideas and inspired enthusiasm.  The new venue provided new opportunities for their talents to shine, as was evidenced everywhere from the dance floor to the auction displays and lavish tables of hors d’oeuvres and desserts.  Their tremendous dedication, organization and camaraderie resulted in two purely glamorous evenings.  

Our first-ever Cocktail Affair provided the opportunity for other fun firsts.  We would like to especially thank Gentry Bourbon, Breakwater Restaurant and Modern Jewelers for all that they contributed to make the bourbon sampling, champagne station and chance at the one true diamond ring such a tremendous success.  

And a final thank you to everyone who participated in the auction, both our donors and enthusiastic bidders.  Your generosity made the two evenings even more exciting with the chance for beautiful items, grand adventures and dinner parties.    

Again, thank you so much for celebrating with us and for your continued support of the Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation.  Our 2017 Valentine Ball weekend was truly one to remember, and all for a truly wonderful cause!
