Reservations Remain for BCHT Dinner
Reservations are available for the 17th Annual Buchanan County Health Trust Dinner & Auction set for Friday, Nov. 14th, at Heartland Acres in Independence. To date the Health Trust has granted nearly $500,000 to help non-profit organizations with hundreds of health related projects.
With the “Autumn Harvest” theme this year, it promises to be a colorful event with many great surprises. The social hour will begin at 6:30 p.m. and includes complimentary hors d’oeuvers, provided by Wapsie Valley Creamery, and a champagne fountain, sponsored by Heartland Acres. Guests will also have a chance to bid on the many wonderful items donated including a wine basket from Cedar Ridge Vineyard in Swisher, a spa day from Em’s Coffee, Old Oak Healing Arts and L’Tonya’s Nail Salon, a pair of designer Maui Jim sunglasses from Advanced Family Eye Care, and a pool party hosted by Mike and Sue Ruffcorn.
The live auction, presented by auctioneer Emmett Donnelly, includes many unique items including a hand-crafted oak hall-tree by Jeff Mescher, a vibrant quilted wall hanging by artist Maud Bentley, an opportunity to tandem jump with Paradise Sky-Diving in Vinton, a vacation stay at Lake of the Ozarks donated by John & Linda Evers and a fabulous pair of metal-worked palm trees created by Iowa Engineered Processing in Independence.
The meal, catered by Steve Flaucher’s BBQ4U, includes a beef filet, garden salad, roasted potato medley, green beans and tea rolls. Kathy Finholt of Kathy’s Kakes, Independence, will provide a variety of highly decorated cakes for dessert.
“We hope everyone will want to join us for a great night out to benefit a wonderful cause which literally touches the lives of thousands of people each day in Buchanan County,” said BCHT President Judy Ferreter.
Guests will be seated at tables of 8. Everyone is welcome. The cost is $65 per plate. For more information or to make reservations, call Brenda Fuller at 319-332-0905.
