Editor, The Times:
On Saturday, Oct. 13, the Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital Auxiliary will hold its sixth annual Dessert Extravaganza. The event will be held in the KOA Banquet Room from 7 – 10 p.m.
Along with the beautiful prepared desserts that our community people and businesses donate, and which will be beautifully displayed for the evening, we will give away some fabulous prizes. We will also have our silent auction items on display as well.
Tickets are only $25 and can be purchased from any Auxiliary member, the Hospital Gift Corner or at the Clearwater KOA. Entertainment this year will be provided by Howard Mitchell.
The Dessert Extravaganza is a great fundraiser and has raised over $12,000 for the purchase of equipment for our hospital.
If you feel that you would like to participate, you can either donate an item for our silent auction and/or sponsor a table for $50. If you would care to help out with a donation or sponsorship, please contact Leslie Wolfer, 250-674-3205; or Gail Capostinsky, 250-674-3521
We can arrange to pickup any contribution and a tax receipt will be issued upon request.
