The 51st Annual Winona Health Auxiliary Birthday Ball is coming up on Saturday, October 12 at Visions Event Center.
There are a number of changes to the event this year. "The Big Fall Ball" is in October instead of September.
Spokesperson Betsy Midthune says it will be less formal with the traditional pre-ball parties being replaced with a cocktail hour in the Summer House, an open air facility at Signatures.
This year the proceeds will fund recliners for inpatient rooms as well as other furniture for the family lounges and for nursing scholarships.
The ticket cost has been lowered from $125 to $100 per person and attendees may dress in 'after five' (semi-formal) wear instead of formal black tie. As always, the event features a gourmet dinner and dancing.
