Saturday evening, Oct. 3, Dr. Helmcken Hospital Auxiliary hosted its ninth annual Dessert Extravaganza and More. It was not a sold out event but the guests attending had a great evening with delicious savouries and desserts.
Following along with the Victorian theme, guests were entertained by Robin and Tim Walker performing an old fashioned waltz. Great music was ongoing throughout the evening by the trio of Gerda, Doug and Howard. The Auxiliary greatly appreciates these folks for donating their time and talent to help our cause.
There were great silent auction items donated by a number of businesses. The VIA Rail package had Carol Jensen coming out winner with the highest bid.
Members appreciate the KOA for allowing them to take over their place to host this event and for being so helpful.
Don’t forget that the Hospital Auxiliary is still selling tickets for its 50/50 raffle. If all 2,000 tickets are sold, you could win $5,000. Auxiliary members will be set up around town to sell tickets or you can get them at the Hospital Gift shop. The tickets are $5 each. The draw will take place Dec. 3 – just in time for holiday shopping.
The members appreciate everyone for supporting them so they can support Clearwater’s Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital.
