Desserts, hors d’oeuvres and music will be featured at the Chase County Hospital Foundation’s appreciation event next Saturday, Feb. 28.
The event will be held at the St. Patrick’s Parish Hall on main street, beginning at 6 p.m.
The foundation holds the event on an annual basis to recognize donors who contribute to the foundation.
Present and past donors to the foundation should have already received invitations with tickets included, according to organizer Deb Hrcka.
She is asking those people for an RSVP by this Friday, Feb. 20.
Tickets for the event will also be available at the door, she said. Cost is $12 per person, or $22 per couple.
Music by Greenblatt & Seay
This year’s musical entertainment will be provided by the duo Greenblatt & Seay of Avoca, Neb.
Over the past three and a half decades, Debby Greenblatt and David Seay have performed thousands of concerts at festivals, county and state fairs, weddings, receptions, reunions, schools and libraries.
Their upbeat musical performances feature vocal harmonies, fiddle, guitar, nyckelharpa, banjo, harmonica, recorder, pennywhistle and the hammered dulcimer.
Greenblatt is a past co-concert master for the Hastings Symphony Orchestra and was the first woman to win the Mid-America Fiddle Contest.
The couple is part of the Nebraska Arts Council (NAC) touring program. The hospital foundation received a grant from the NAC and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment to help cover the cost of the entertainment.
People wanting to RSVP or to purchase tickets can contact Hrcka at 882-7290 or by e-mail, dhrcka@chasecountyhospital.
