Your invitation to attend the

12th Annual Heart Ball

Saturday, February 15th, 2020

Bonner County Fair Grounds, Sandpoint, ID

Doors Open at 5:00 PM

As the Foundation's biggest fundraiser, this year's proceeds fund Bonner General Health's new ophthalmology services opening in 2020. Since Dr. George's retirement, our community has been without an Ophthalmologist, requiring our neighbors to drive to Coeur d'Alene or Spokane for treatment.

In keeping with our mission to provide quality compassionate care close to home, we welcome our honored guests, Ophthalmologist Dr. and Mrs. Mark Torres at this festive event.

Space is limited, so buy your tickets now!

The evening begins with a Champagne Social with Passed Appetizers that include - Toasted Parmesan Phyllo Shells, Huckleberry Shrimp Cocktail, and Caprese Skewers.

The Heart Ball includes:

1.  A Three-course dinner, including:

Soup Course: Winter Squash Bisque Sea Scallop served with Artisan Bread

Salad Course: Hazlenut & Chevre Mixed Greens & Pomegranate Champagne Vinaigrette

Entree Course: Ancho Chile & Hibiscus Grilled Filet Mignon with Vanilla Bean Prawns, and Parmesan & Thyme Scalloped Potatoes. Vegetarian Entree: Grilled Vegetable Galette.

Coffee is served after dinner.

2. A LIVE AUCTION! Live auctions packages include a vacation in Unforgettable Florence, Stock Your Cellar, and three-nights at the Calgary Stampede!

3. Dancing to music provided by Rox Music Co.

All expenses are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
