Hearts Gala fundraiser planned

The Trinity Health Auxiliary Healthy Hearts Club will host a “Hearts Gala” on Friday, February 9, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Riverside, according to a press release from the hospital.

The evening includes entertainment, socializing, and food, with a buffet featuring chef-carved beef and stuffed pork loin. Entertainment will be provided by Midwest Dueling Pianos.

Co-Chair Sherry Maragos says the gala is a fundraising event held each year during American Heart Month as part of the Auxiliary’s Healthy Hearts Club initiative.

“Heart disease remains the #1 killer of men and women in the U.S.,” Maragos said in the press release. “Each year we raise funds to support Trinity’s heart program and the patients who utilize those services. This year, our goal is to raise $25,000 to put toward the cardiac care unit at the new hospital.” Trinity Health hopes to break ground this spring on a new healthcare campus in southwest Minot.

Tickets for the Hearts Gala are $75 per person or $500 for a table of eight. Tickets are available at the Trinity Hospital Gift Shop or online at www.trinityhealth.org/auxiliarygala. For more information, call (701) 857-5221.
