Hospital Foundation to host ‘Enchanted Winter Evening’
The Chase County Hospital Foundation will be hosting a community appreciation event on Feb. 23 at St. Patrick’s Parish Hall titled “An Enchanted Winter Evening.”
The evening will begin with a wine and dessert social at 6:30 p.m. followed by entertainment at 7:30 p.m.
The Toasted Ponies, a bluegrass band from the Lincoln, area, will be the featured entertainment. Along with their bluegrass selections, the group also incorporates cajun, western swing, gospel and celtic tunes into their performance.
“The event is a way of saying thank you to the community for its support of Chase County Community Hospital and the Chase County Hospital Foundation,” said Hospital Foundation Executive Director Randy Vlasin.
“We started do this type of activity three years ago with the desert theater events. In the past, we have had some very good local talent but it has become more challenging to coordinate schedules for the various performers.
“This year we decided to change it up a little by bringing in the Toasted Ponies. We are looking forward to a very enjoyable evening,” Vlasin said.
The Toasted Ponies performance is provided with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. The Chase County Hospital Foundation submitted a matching grant to the Nebraska Arts Council last fall, which was funded to help with expenses.
The event is open to the public. Cost is $10 per person or $18 per couple. Since seating is limited, RSVPs are required by Feb. 15. Tickets can be ordered by calling Vlasin at 308-882-7379 or emailing him at
