Barton Foundation plans gala

Barton Hospital Foundation will sponsor its 10th annual dinner dance gala Oct. 20 at Harveys Resort & Casino. The event will be elegant with black tie attire optional. For those wishing to dress to the theme colors for “Starry, Starry Night” it’s simple, it’s elegant and it’s black, silver and red.

The event will begin earlier this year at 5:30 p.m. to accommodate the need for more visiting. Dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m. with dancing to The Hucklebucks from 9 p.m. to midnight.

Individual tickets are $100 for dinner and include selected wines, professional photograph, entertainment and atmosphere. A silent auction provides interesting presentations for guests during the social hour, where they will have an opportunity to sample incredible hors d’oeuvres. During this time Laine Photography will provide each guest with a professional photograph. An elegant dinner duet of filet mignon and festive shrimp will to topped only by the delightful dessert selection.

Following dinner the silent auction will close and the dancing begin. With music provided by The Hucklebucks, guests will be jumping to the swinging saxophone, lowdown harp and harmonizing vocals of Doug James accompanied by the finest harmonica and guitar players from Sacramento.

Corporate sponsorships for tables of 10 guests are offered at $1,200 and $1,500. Special sponsor opportunities also are available for people who are not able to attend, but as a gift would like to send another lucky couple in their behalf. Other options are available for businesses to support the event with a full tax-deductible donation, receive various levels of recognition at the event and not actually attend. These options include providing a professional photograph for each couple, dessert or cocktails for all guests or decorations throughout the ballroom.

All proceeds raised this grand gala are placed in the Barton Hospital Foundation Endowment Fund. Is is the goal this year to reach the $1 million mark with the endowment fund. Today, the fund totals $850,000 and continues to grow with community support. Although this money will never be spent, the investment interest is available annually for expenditure for hospital requests as board approved.

Investment earnings to date will help fund the construction of the helipad for emergency air transport from Barton Hospital. The helipad project began this summer and is expected to be complete before the snow falls.

Credit card reservations may be made. For a reservation, invitation or more information send an e-mail to or call (530) 542-2945, Ext. 3.
