— They’re rolling out the red carpet — literally — for the Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary’s annual Mistletoe Ball.

This year's theme will be "A Night at the Oscars." The gala fundraiser, now in its 78th year, will be held Saturday, Jan. 19, at Silver Birches, 205 PA Route 507, in Tafton.

“Come experience old and new Hollywood,” says co-chair Nancy Moro. "Dress like one of your favorite stars, and maybe you’ll win a prize.” Moro is considering going as Marilyn Monroe.

It’s the hospital auxiliary’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

“The proceeds this year will go towards a fund to purchase the resources, such as equipment and information systems, needed to recruit physicians and other medical talent," Moro said. "We’re building a state-of-the-art patient tower, and we want to assure it’s equipped and staffed as best as possible.”

The Mistletoe Ball will feature live music and dancing with DJ Jumping Jeff Walker from WKRZ and a “fabulous basket raffle” with donations from many local vendors, including Apple Day Spa, Black & Brass Coffee, Rustic Farmworks, Wallenpaupack Brewing, VIP Kids Club, and Wayne County Ford.

With more than 200 members, the Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is one of the strongest in Pennsylvania. Anyone can join, says Mistletoe co-chair Danielle Hedgelon.

“Come to the Mistletoe Ball and find out how much fun we can be while helping our community hospital at the same time," she said.

Tickets are $85 per person. Call 570-226-9750 to reserve your spot. Visit wmh.org to find out more about the auxiliary.
