GRUNDY CENTER, IA The Grundy County Memorial Hospital Foundation's 'Snowflakes and Diamonds' Gala is Saturday, February 6, and will feature WHO Channel 13 Chief Meteorologist Ed Wilson as emcee. The evening includes a social hour, dinner, music, raffle, and live, silent, and dessert auctions, plus Wilson's sunny forecast for the Grundy County Memorial Hospital. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Grundy Community Center, and will help support the hospital's project to expand the Specialty Clinics and modernize the second floor.

Signature features of the annual Gala are the Silent and Live Auctions, which include a wide variety of travel packages, gift items, sports memorabilia and tickets to athletic and cultural events. Auctioneer Mark Jungling will preside over a Live Auction that includes a resort vacation, a Florida vacation package including Sea World and Disney World tickets, a landscaping package, car care for a year, and entertainment experiences hosted by local hospital supporters. "Supporting high quality local health care is the ultimate goal of the evening," says Foundation events coordinator Erin Schildroth.

Plus, our volunteer committee of Kelly Dinsdale, Kate Durbin, Jan Ehrig, Susan Jaspers, Rhonda Samo and Cindy Simms is planning an elegant meal, beautiful dcor, and an overall relaxed and enjoyable evening.
