Gala Announcement

By: Boone County

Boone County Health Center (BCHC) announces their gala entitled “Detection, Better to See….Let’s go for 3D.”  The gala will be held Friday, April 12th at 6 p.m. at the Cardinal Inn & Event Center in Albion. Proceeds for this year’s gala will support BCHC’s priority project 3D – A Clearer View.

“We’re not buying a whole new mammography unit. The machine we have now is great. All it needs is an upgrade in order to go from 2D to 3D mammography,” said Foundation Director Aprill Murphy. “The total cost of this upgrade is $157,000. Our priority project has already raised nearly $60,000 and BCHC has committed $77,000, but we still need $20,000 more. We know everyone is anxious for us to get this upgrade. This gala is a great way to come help us reach our goal so we can upgrade sooner than later.”

The gala will feature both silent and live auctions. The special entertainment has a global reputation of excellence, having entertained audiences in over 90 countries. This multi-award winning group has delighted heads of state, celebrities, and Fortune 500 companies with their unique blend of world-class talent and winning personalities.

“Honestly, you just have to come see the entertainment this year,” said Murphy. “We don’t want to break the suspense for you, but we do advise that you make sure to be present during dessert for this special treat.”

Gala tickets are $50 per person, which includes a meal, drink ticket, surprise show and auction. Tables for eight people can be reserved at $60 per person. Semi-formal dress attire is recommended but guests are welcomed to dress as they feel comfortable.

“Only 200 tickets will be sold this year and they are going to go fast,” Murphy said. “This is guaranteed to be a fun and memorable event you won’t want to miss, so get your tickets soon.”

Tickets are on sale now through Murphy at the BCHC Foundation office or by calling 402-395-3252.
