We invite community members, vendors and friends to join us at our 6th Annual Gala on Friday, March 9th at Shooter’s Bar & Grill! This year proceeds will be designated to the purchase of a new handicap accessible door which will replace the existing one that connects the care center to the hospital. Replacing this door will give residents, staff and visitors easier access to each area.
We are excited to announce entertainment by, Eric E! With virtuoso guitar ability, a stellar chameleon-like voice, and comic wit, Eric E provides a high-energy, interactive, variety-filled and fun show that is perfect for audiences with a broad age-range. His irresistible skill and huge repertoire always leaves the audience cheering for more!
Eric E will walk you through your favorite musical memories. He has a marvelous way of getting an audience involved and their attention riveted – he has the audience shout out a year and he plays a hit song from that year. It is a fun-filled walk through music history, with a uniqueness and variety of styles that will appeal to every group, and make your event something they will talk about for years!
Social hour begins at 5:30 p.m.; attendees are invited to dress semi-formal. Meal will include your choice of Hickory Smoked BBQ Ribs or Fantail Butterfly Shrimp with salad, veggie, potato, dinner roll, and dessert.
