Lakewood Foundation will 'Celebrate You' at annual fundraising Event April 20

The Lakewood Health System Foundation will hold its 19th Annual Foundation Dinner Auction, April 20 at Lakewood Health System's Main Campus east of Staples. The theme of this year's auction will be a celebration, thanking those who contributed to the Care Center's Capital Campaign. Proceeds from the event will go toward funding renovations at the Lakewood Care Center.

The event will include a dinner, silent auction, and entertainment featuring comedian Kermet Apio. Heidi Chapman, foundation director for Lakewood Health System, said the event will play a critical role in providing upgrades to Lakewood's senior living facility that might not otherwise be possible.

"It's truly a win-win event," said Chapman. "Guests enjoy a wonderful dinner, great entertainment and the chance to bid on some fabulous items, all while benefitting their community."

A social hour will start at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m., live and silent auctions at 7:30 p.m. and a comedy show at 8 p.m. Individual tickets are $45 and tables (which seat six) are available for $250. Tax deductions apply. Call Amy at (218) 894-8508 for more information or to RSVP.
