  • Reservations are still available for the 73rd annual Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Gala Ball on Jan. 18 at Ehrhardt’s Waterfront Resort, near Hawley.
    Co-chair Martha Wilson invited the public to “a fun evening dining and dancing, and at the same time supporting our local hospital, which does so much to care for the health of our community.”
    The event, which has a Kentucky Derby theme, begins with cocktails (cash bar) at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. featuring a choice of herb-encrusted beef medallions, Chicken Marsala or seared salmon. Dancing to the music of Groove Train starts at 8 p.m. Black tie and Kentucky Derby attire are optional.
    Reservations are $80 per person and can be made by calling 570-226-3394.
    The ball is the auxiliary’s largest fund raiser. This year’s proceeds are earmarked for the Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Women’s Imaging Center, which provides mammograms, bone density testing and ultrasound services.
    Committee member Cathy Howell noted strong support for this year’s Gala Ball from sponsors at all levels, including major sponsors Grimm Construction Inc. (Rob and Karla Grimm), Bold Gold Media, The Dime Bank, ER-One, Honesdale National Bank, Wayne Bank and Upper Delaware Valley Cancer Center.
    “The auxiliary is extremely pleased and thankful to our major sponsors, who have demonstrated their commitment to quality local health care,” Mrs. Howell said.
