The Appleton Area Health Services (AAHS) Foundation 5th Annual Gala raised $12,370!
These proceeds have purchased three Pedal Wheelchairs for AAHS. Pedal wheelchairs will bring a new option for daily exercise to residents, tenants and patients at AAHS. Residents of the Care Center have already started using them. “I would like to use them every day!” stated Leona, Care Center Resident.
The Gala was held on March 10th at Shooter’s Bar and Grill. Approximately 110 attended the event, which featured Diva’s Through the Decades who performed female hits from the 40’s through today. They really got the crowd involved in the show and topped off the night’s events perfectly.
During the social hour, a wine pull was held, sponsored by Shooter’s. 50 bottles were available for purchase at $20 a cork, with six lucky individuals receiving $50 cash each. Many guests also participated in a Heads or Tails 50/50 Raffle where participants were eliminated with a coin flip. The last one standing got half the pot.
There were 16 items, mostly donated by local businesses, for the silent auction. In the live auction, items up for bid included a Larsmont Cottage Getaway, Mall of America Gift Package, watches and more.
Raffle winners for Minnesota lower level seating spots events were:
• Juston Golden, of Holloway, MN Wild Tickets
• Lisa Nichols, MN Timberwolves Tickets
• Dean Isaacson, of Holloway, MN Twins Tickets
It was a fun night and we greatly appreciate the support of everyone involved. Look forward to something new in 2018.
