The Heart Beat Ball promises to be another great success and a great night out on the town.
This year, the event will be held Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Pagosa Lodge. The event is a fund-raiser for the Pagosa Medical Center.
The ball is a dressy affair, begins at 7 p.m. and lasts to 11. There will be both silent and live auctions. There will be samplings of food — “A Taste of Pagosa” — offered by area restaurants from 7-9 p.m. Dance to all the “oldies but goodies” and remember to bring some special requests for our DJ, Cowboy Dusty.
Contributions for the event are still needed and if you’d like to donate auction items or volunteer, call Tari Woods at 731-8877. We are specifically seeking individual volunteers and local organizations such as the ladies in WIPS, The Homemakers and the Women’s Club to make 30 centerpieces for tables. There is no particular theme. The centerpieces will be judged by attendees at the event and the first-place entry will be auctioned off in the live auction. The others will have bidding sheets at each table and will go home with the lucky high bidder.
Advance tickets are $25 and tickets at the door will be $30. Tickets can be purchased at the Bank of the San Juans, Citizens Bank at both locations, Rio Grande Savings and Loan, The Bank of Colorado, Pagosa Mountain Hospital and at the clinic.
