News @ Noon: ‘Holly Ball’ To Raise Over $700,000 for Hospice, Cancer
ST. CLOUD - Thousands of people will put on their formal wear on Saturday for a night of food and dancing. The 41st annual "Holly Ball" is a fundraiser for CentraCare's hospice care, as well as the Coborn Cancer Center's "Greatest Needs" fund.
It's been hospice for 40 years, but we do find that there's a lot of gray area between cancer and hospice, and they're usually unfortunately related. And so we thought by bringing that in we could help people with the "Greatest Needs" fund. Buy prosthetics, wigs, help with lawn mowing, help with things that aren't usually covered by insurance.
Holly Ball chairwoman Chanda Gebhardt they're expecting to raise over $700,000 on Saturday.
The event is sold out with over 2,000 people coming to the River's Edge Convention Center.
Entertainment for the evening includes; the Dueling Pianoes, the Fabulous Armadillos, and Boogie Wonderland.
Planning for Holly Ball begins in January.
