Hospital Auxiliary members plan garden party

An afternoon of fun and entertainment will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 6 at the Blue Loon Grill

Editor, The Times:

With spring just around the corner, the Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital Auxiliary members are getting ready for their third annual Afternoon Garden Party. An afternoon of fun and entertainment will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 6 at the Blue Loon Grill.

An exquisite lunch buffet will be provided for all the guests followed by a live auction of unique handmade and retail garden items. We will also have garden vendors and a silent auction as well as a hat competition. There will be judging of the hats and first, second and third prizes will be presented.

We are seeking the help of businesses or individuals to donate garden items such as birdhouses, stepping stones, deck planters, willow furniture, water fountains, weathervanes, seeds, or any garden ornament. The funds raised at this event are used to purchase items for our local hospital and ambulance service. Clearwater is the only hospital between Kamloops and Jasper and so our Auxiliary works very hard to provide the extra supplies that are needed to keep our hospital updated and functional.

Any item that is donated can be picked up by one of our members. Also a charitable receipt will be issued to all businesses that care to donate to this fundraising event.

Tickets for this fun event can be purchased for $25 and you can get them at the Blue Loon Grill, Watauga Village office, the Hospital Gift Shop or from an Auxiliary member.

If you require more information, items picked up or tickets, please call 250-674-2700 or 250-674-3205.

The last two years has been a sell out so we do suggest you get your tickets quickly.
