Sea Cruisers to play at Auxiliary Gala
The Eaton Rapids Medical Center Auxiliary is excited to announce that the Sea Cruisers will perform at its annual Fall Gala on Friday, October 18th, 2013. In addition to live music, this fun-filled evening at the English Inn's Medovue Hall will include dinner and a silent auction. The Sea Cruisers are a local rock and roll band that has been playing music from the 50's, 60's and 70's for over 25 years. Proceeds from the event will be used to purchase a pediatric colonoscope for the Medical Center.
The evening will begin with a cash bar and appetizers at 5:00 p.m. with an ongoing silent auction that will feature some fantastic items such as hand-crafted furniture, wildlife carvings, hotel packages and much, much more. At 7:00 p.m. a complete dinner will be served. Auction items will be released to the highest bidders as we enjoy one of the English Inn's fabulous desserts.
For more information on the event, tickets or table sponsorships, or if you have an item you would like to donate to the silent auction, please call Linda Fuller at 517-663-8094 by September 30th. Remember that all proceeds from this event go directly back to the Eaton Rapids Medical Center. We are truly fortunate to have such a wonderful facility right here in our own community and are pleased to support their ongoing efforts to bring Eaton Rapids residents the best in medical care.
