The Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation’s 27th Annual Valentine Ball, co-chaired by Dr. Luke & Geneva Baxley and Bob & Mary Lou Cullen, and was held on February 6th with a “Golden Age of Hollywood” theme. Hundreds of guests enjoyed elaborate dinner parties hosted by volunteers prior to the Ball and then gathered together for an evening of dancing, tiers of handcrafted desserts and breakfast bites, and a silent auction. Since its inception in 1990, the Valentine Ball has provided nearly $4.5 million for the non-profit hospital, helping to fund projects and programs from the ICU renovation to cancer care. Proceeds from the 2016 Valentine Ball will help fund the renovation of the hospital’s Collins Birthing Center, where up to 100 babies are delivered each month. Photos by Paul Nurnberg.
