Brittany plans to be accepted into the program and earn her Doctor of Pharmacy degree, pass her boards and practice as a registered Pharmacist.

What an Evening!

Posted on Updated on

The 2015 Annual Gala Affair–Swinging London was an amazing success all the way around!  With over 300 guests, it was the largest event ever!

‘The Britins’, America’s premier Beatles Tribute band had nearly everyone on the dance floor or singing along.  From their replica costumes, hair and accents, they did not disappoint.

Mary Ross won the $2,500 Vacation Package voucher through Rentz Travel in Morris and  Rita Grabow won the pair of tickets to see Chanhassen Dinner Theatre’s production of Mary Poppins donated by Big Stone Radio.

The buffet dinner of Prime Rib and Stuffed Pork Loin received rave reviews and the Red Velvet Union Jack cakes created  by Alicia Wilcox were a hit with everyone.

Thanks to our sponsors, our donors, and everyone who helped make this year’s event one for the books!

RademachersTickets to win at $2,500 Vacation Getaway through Rentz Travel in Morris are on sale now from Gala Committee members and at the BSHCF offices located in the Dialysis Building. They are $10 each and you need not be present to win! Drawing will be held at the Gala on Saturday, April 25 at Sioux Historic Pavilion in Ortonville. There’s still time to make your reservations–click here to reserve on line or call the Foundation office at 320-839-4135.

After winning the vacation voucher, Redgey and I spent a lot of time thinking and dreaming and studying a map trying to decide where we wanted to go.  After much discussion, we decided to takt the whole family to Disney World.  Anita Longnecker was great to work with.  She knew everything i needed to know and if she didn’t, she made sure to find out.  She was very patient and worked with us to make sure everything was arranged just right.  We had a wonderful trip and I think the adults loved it as much as the kids.  Thank you to the Big Stone Health Care Foundation for helping me take my family on a trip of a lifetime!
