On Saturday, December 5, the Door County Medical Center Auxiliary will host the annual Angel Ball at the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club. The event, which raises funds for scholarships awarded annually to those in the health care field, is open to all.
“Last year, we awarded 21 $1,000 scholarships to Door and Kewaunee County high school students, local professionals pursuing continuing education credits in health-related fields such as pharmacy and dental, and Ministry Door County Medical Center (MDCMC) employees pursuing professional development,” says Deb Hogan, president-elect of the Auxiliary board and event co-chair. “The cost of education, including health care education, is significant and we are proud to be able to contribute to those costs and help foster a high level of skill and professionalism in our local health care workers.”
Attendees will be treated to a special chance to hear directly from scholarship beneficiaries in a yet-to-be-unveiled format. The ball also features a 50/50 drawing, cash sweepstakes, cocktails, dinner and dancing to a live band.
“This event is always great fun,” says Hogan, “and a chance for our community to come out and learn more about how the Auxiliary supports MDCMC’s goal of providing quality health care, close to home. We invite one and all to join us!”
The event begins at 6 p.m. and concludes after dancing at midnight. Tickets cost $75 and are on sale until December 1. To purchase tickets, call the Door County Medical Center Foundation at (920) 746-1071.
