Little River, SC (PRESS RELEASE) – An exciting addition has been added to the entertainment lineup for the 7th Annual McLeod Health Foundation Ball, presented by MagMutual. Christopher Po, MD, at McLeod Nephrology Seacoast, will be performing a choreographed foxtrot, along with partner Clara Formoso, owner of By the Sea Ballroom & Latin Dance Studio in Myrtle Beach. Po has been rehearsing for months for this event and hopes to wow the audience with his routine.
On Saturday, August 1, 2015, the Carolina Ballroom at the Sea Trail Convention Center in Sunset Beach, NC, will be magically transformed as the ball committee hosts “Top Hats & Tiaras”. Guests will begin the evening with a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a gourmet dinner and dancing with live entertainment. The proceeds from this year’s event will be benefiting the Emergency Department expansion project at McLeod Seacoast.
“Our local communities have strongly supported both McLeod Loris and McLeod Seacoast hospitals. As we continue to grow and expand our services at our hospitals, our reach into the community also expands,” said Kelly Hughes, Director of the McLeod Health Foundation. “We are excited about hosting this year’s event at Sea Trail Convention Center in Sunset Beach so that we can include our friends in Brunswick County as well.”
For information on how you can purchase tickets, become a sponsor or contribute silent auction items for this year’s event, please call Nichole Cox at (843) 390-8338 or visit www.mcleodfoundation.org.
