Hospice Plans Masquerade Ball For April

Hospice Chautauqua County will host its first masquerade ball at Chautauqua Suites in Mayville on April 27, from 5:30 p.m. until midnight.

This event, which will benefit Hospice, includes food, entertainment, auctions and more.

Last year, Hospice hosted its annual dinner dance with the Second Chance Prom. There were more than 320 in attendance who came to support Hospice.

The masquerade ball is designed to set the right note for those who are interested to come out for a night of deceptive appearance and merry amusement.

The public is asked to come join in on the fun and celebrate spring with this masked affair. Attendees should dress semi-formal.

Cocktails will be served promptly from 5:30-6:30 p.m., and a sit-down dinner with filet mignon and salmon served at 7. Local bakeries will offer some desserts.

Tickets for the Hospice Masquerade Ball are $50 and are available at Hospice of Chautauqua County, located at 20 W. Fairmount Ave., Lakewood, or by calling 338-0033. Tickets may also be purchased online at hospicechautco.org.

All funds raised by the masquerade ball will go directly to Hospice. Hospice is a nonprofit organization that specializes in delivering care to those within the community who have, or are currently, experiencing life limiting illnesses. For many years, Hospice has had an extensive experience with working with a diverse group of people within the community and has offered services such as emotional support, patient comfort, nursing visits, support for caregivers, counseling, grief and bereavement services, and more.
