The Lake Regional Hospital Auxiliary will host the Annual Ball on Saturday, Oct. 6, in Campana Hall at The Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark. As always, the ball is open to the community.

This year’s event will celebrate the hospital’s 40th anniversary, with past and present Lake Regional Health System board members and chiefs of staff serving as the event’s honorary chairs.

“This year’s Annual Ball will be a celebration 40 years in the making,” said Jayne Brown, Auxiliary president and a co-chair of the event, along with Auxiliary member Jeanne Harshman and Lake Regional Emergency Department nurse manager Amy Funderburk. “We look forward to spending this special evening with the community and invite one and all to attend.”  

Throughout its history, the Annual Ball has raised more than $2 million for Lake Regional Health System, benefitting the Cancer Center, Cardiac Catheterization Lab, Emergency Department, Family Birth Center, Surgery and more.

The festivities will begin at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour, followed by dinner and dancing. Drive OKC, a five-piece band with a horn section and male and female vocalists, will provide the entertainment, and dinner will be a four-course gourmet meal.

“If you enjoy terrific food, live music, community celebration and supporting local causes, the Annual Ball is a not-to-be-missed event,” Funderburk said. “You will feel a spirit of camaraderie throughout the evening as we all come together to celebrate Lake Regional and our generous supporters.”

Individual tickets are $125. All proceeds from this year’s Annual Ball will benefit heart care at Lake Regional Health System. Sponsorship packages are available ranging from $500 to $10,000. All sponsors will receive preferred seating.
