There were still a few seats open Monday for the Chase County Community Hospital Foundation’s 2016 Gala, scheduled for March 12.

Proceeds from the formal affair will be applied to the purchase of a new 3D digital mammography machine. The present machine expires next December, meaning that new parts and insurance cannot be acquired.

A new machine can cost $436,000, including training, according to Deb Hrcka, assistant executive director of the Foundation.

She said BWTelcom will donate $25,000 towards the purchase if the Foundation can raise $50,000 by Nov. 1.

The Gala, “Throw in the Green for a Mammography Machine,” will begin with a social hour at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. at the new Chase County Expo Building on the fairgrounds in Imperial.

Tickets are $125 per person or $1,000 for a table of eight. Hrcka said the Foundation is planning on 150 attending the event.

Tickets may still be purchased by contacting Hrcka at 308-882-7290.

 

Entertainment

Following the dinner, comedian and keynote speaker David Ferrell will entertain. He is a multi-year nominee for Comedian of the Year by the Inspirational Country Music Awards, can be heard on Sirius XM radio’s “Laugh USA,” and has been named one of the top “Hot

In addition to his uproarious tales about everyday life, Ferrell delights audiences with hilarious impressions of famous celebrities, cartoon characters, farm animals and more.

He is billed as proving that comedy can be clean and funny.

Ferrell has performed for Fortune 500 companies and leaves audiences with positive messages.
