The Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Valentine Ball took place Feb. 11 at a brand new venue: Tabby Place. 

For the very first time, the weekend included a special event the night before, A Cocktail Affair, where guests had the opportunity to preview the decorations and auction items while enjoying an open bar, elaborate hors d’oeuvres and live music. Now in its 28th year, the foundation’s signature event has received an outstanding level of philanthropic support that has enabled it to underwrite half of Keyserling Cancer Center’s capital and equipment.

At the Feb. 10 Cocktail Affair were event honorary chairs Richard and Joyce Gray; Beaufort Memorial CEO Russell Baxley and his wife Stephanie; Joyce Gray, center, with Edie Rodgers, Sue Collins, Shirley Credle and Judy Gabriel; Rosemary and Kevin Cuppia from Modern Jewelers, which donated the evening’s major prize – a diamond. 

Seen at the Ball on Saturday were Valentine Ball co-chairs Chris and Amy Geier and Drs. Andrea Hucks and Dan Ripley; Dr. Mark and Elizabeth Newberry; Dr. Luke and Geneva Baxley with Dr. Rob and Pam Vyge; and Dr. Majd Chahin and  Jennifer Codding.
