Big kudos to all the big-hearted hosts and hostesses of all the wonderful private dinner parties that seated more than 700 people. Everyone was raving about the fantastic food and lovely decor. A big “job well done” goes to Co-Chairmen Mary Lee and George Grove, Rick Toomey and Dr. Linda Hawes along with Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Alice Moss and Brenda Molony and their staff for so elegantly bringing to life Beaufort’s largest charity event of the year. The foundation is earmarking the proceeds from this Valentine Ball for Beaufort Memorial’s LifeFit Program. This comprehensive program focuses on health and wellness in our community offering a variety of disease management programs, community education, outreach services and fitness. The LifeFit Wellness Center is a full-service, medically supervised fitness and wellness center that, thanks to money raised at this event, is being significantly expanded as it relocates to the new facility now under construction across the street from the hospital. Big thanks to all the ticket buyers and volunteers for the ball for helping make Beaufort a healthier place to live. Here are some pics for you. Some photos courtesy of Paul Nurnberg.
