Fifth Annual Starry Night Event And Free Health Screenings At LAF
On Friday evening, August 6th, Lakewood Hospital is proud to host its fifth annual Starry Night, a patron benefit presented by Signature Sponsor, Regency Construction Services, Inc. The event will be held under the starlit tents on Belle Avenue from 7 to 10:30 p.m. A VIP Reception will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. for those purchasing tickets at sponsorship levels and will include participative activities.
Proceeds from Starry Night benefit two worthwhile causes– Lakewood Hospital Diabetes and Endocrine Center and the Lakewood Arts Festival Scholarship Fund. Each year, Starry Night glows a little brighter and this year is no different! The five-star event will feature music from The Bottom Line Band with dancing under the stars, outstanding gourmet cuisine and live and silent auctions of local artists’ original works of art. A wine cork raffle will also be offered--participants will have an opportunity to win a delicious and unique bottle of wine or other fabulous packages. News Anchor and Senior Health Correspondent Monica Robins of WKYC-TV3 will emcee the event.
“I am really looking forward to Starry Night,” said Janice Murphy, President of Lakewood and Fairview Hospitals. “It has quickly became a premier event to attend right here in the heart of Lakewood. Having the opportunity to spend a summer evening with friends and colleagues while raising money for two great causes truly makes this an event you won’t want to miss.“
The Lakewood Hospital Diabetes and Endocrine Center, one of the beneficiaries of this event, has a team of experts who focus on disease management, education and prevention as well as the treatment of other endocrine disorders.
The Center uses event proceeds to host an educational Diabetes Symposium and to support its Diabetes Assistance Initiative, a program to help the uninsured and underinsured by providing funds for prescription diabetes medications and supplies as well as scholarships for diabetes education.
Lakewood Hospital has once again partnered with Lakewood’s Local Girl Gallery and made a request to local artists to submit artwork that will be up for auction at the event. There was a wonderful response to the artists’ call out with artwork ranging from beautiful paintings to jewelry, furniture and much more.
Ticket prices for Starry Night begin at $100. Individual sponsorships, which include an invitation to a VIP Reception, start at $150. A variety of corporate sponsorships, which include entrance to the VIP Reception, are also available. Our Vintage Sponsorship is $50 and will help underwrite the purchase of a fine wine.
