Valley County Health System Foundation Hosts “Off to the Races” Annual Charity Night
The ladies donned big hats, fascinators, and beautiful dresses, while the guys showed up in sharp bow-ties, suspenders, and hats. If you didn't know better, you could have been in a Kentucky Derby post-party. The atmosphere was both fun and supportive. From several fun games throughout the evening, live and silent auctions, text-to-donate to help with the CT Scanner purchase, to ending the night with great dancing and music, those in attendance were kept busy, laughing and enjoying the night. Delicious food and dessert that kept with the Southern theme was provided by Roy's Place. Trotter Event Center served up specialty drinks, Mint Julep's and Derby Mules, to also go with the theme. The best hat went to Jenny Wolf and best tie (complete ensemble) went to Shay Reilly. In addition, Bob Stowell was recognized with the Volunteer Recognition Award for his many years of volunteering to help the Foundation. During the text-to-donate portion for the CT Scanner, attendees were made aware of a donor coming forward who would make a 2 for 1 donation to the project when the Foundation reaches $100,000 (they will donate $50,000). During the quick 5 minutes of texting, Team 1 and Team 2 raced to see who could raise the most (Team 1 won by a landslide...sorry Team 2), a total of $20,850 was donated in that short time frame toward that $100,000 goal. If you would like to help the Foundation reach the $100,000 goal and receive the bonus of $50,000, please click the DONATE button at the top of the page, or mail your donation to VCHS Foundation, PO Box 321, Ord, NE 68862. The Foundation thanks everyone for their support of this charity event.
