The second annual Heart Beat Ball promises to be another great success and a great night out on the town.
This year the event will be held on Saturday, February 25 at the Pagosa Lodge. The event is a fundraiser for the Pagosa Medical Center.
The Ball is a dressy affair and begins at 7pm lasting until 11pm. There will be both silent and live auctions. There will be samplings of food “A Taste of Pagosa” offered by area restaurants from 7-9pm.
Dance to all the “oldies but goodies” and remember to bring some special requests for our DJ, “Cowboy Dusty”.
Contributions for the event are still needed and if you’d like to donate auction items or volunteer please call Tari Woods at 731-8877. We are specifically seeking individual volunteers and local organizations such as the ladies in WIPS, The Homemakers and the Women’s Club to make 30 center pieces for our tables. There is no particular theme.
The center pieces will be judged by attendees at the event and the first place entry will be auctioned of in the live auction and the others will have bidding sheets at each table and go to the home of the lucky high bidder.
Advance tickets are $25.00 and tickets at the door will be $30.00. Tickets may be purchased at the Bank of the San Juans, Citizens Bank at both locations, Rio Grand Savings and Loan, The Bank of Colorado, Pagosa Springs Medical Center and at the Clinic.
