“Our Roots are Planted for a Shore Future” will take place on Saturday, April 30, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Heathland Manor on the grounds of Hunters Oak in Queenstown.
The menu for this elegant cocktail party includes hors d'oeuvres, carving and pasta stations, a salad buffet and dessert. Guests will be entertained by a local pianist and have an opportunity to meet some of the staff who provide emergency medical care 24 hours a day, every day, at the Queen Anne’s Emergency Center.
A silent auction will feature a collection of packages that will appeal to outdoors people, gardeners, wine enthusiasts, gourmet diners and travelers. Bidding will heat up for a crab feast for 30 and for a spa and fitness package. Golf enthusiasts should come prepared to vie for outings at three of the area’s finest courses and lessons to polish up their game.
The fundraising goal of $60,000 will purchase equipment for the Queen Anne’s Emergency Center. The two items on the list are a 12-lead EKG machine with software to wirelessly transmit test results to physicians at other healthcare facilities and a GE Panda, the most up to date technology available for warming, delivering oxygen to and monitoring of newborns and infants.
Tickets for “Our Roots are Planted for a Shore Future” are $125 per person. To reserve tickets, call 410-822-1000, ext 5763.
