LACONIA — Friday, February 7 marks the 10th Anniversary of the LRGHealthcare Red Dress Gala at Church Landing at Mill Falls a the Lake. The gala planning committee is proud to announce that the event sold out in record time this year.
Presented by MB Tractor & Equipment this elegant evening will feature a delicious meal created by The Common Man culinary team, live and silent auctions, and dancing to local favorite Paul Warnick and Phil 'n the Blanks.
Gala co-chairs Susan Brown of the Lakes Region Floral Studio, Liane Clairmont of Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook, and Stephanie Wentworth of Decorative Interiors are all thrilled by the response.
"Never in a million years did we think the Red Dress Gala would sell out so quickly," states Clairmont. "The response from the community has been incredible. We speculate that the decision to move the gala back to Church Landing, coupled with this being the 10th anniversary, had a big impact on ticket sales."
The Red Dress Gala offers great sponsorship and advertising opportunities. With 320 guests businesses receive excellent exposure and marketing benefits. Proceeds from the Red Dress Gala support cardiac services and technology at LRGHealthcare and for local EMS partners."There is still time to include an ad in the beautiful full-color program booklet," explains gala co-chair Stephanie Wentworth. "We are also collecting live and silent auction items and this event is a great way to showcase your business while demonstrating support for an important local cause."
Susan Brown adds "The outpouring of support during last week's Children's Auction and the quick sell-out of the Red Dress Gala are testament that we live in a very unique community. Businesses and people of the Lakes Region are engaged; they go above and beyond to support important initiatives and that generosity is contagious," states Brown. "We are so appreciative of the many supporters of this year's gala, and encourage everyone to support those who support our community."
