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
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!
