Proceeds from this year’s Benefit Ball will be used to purchase a state-of-the art Holmium Laser for urological procedures that will eliminate the need for additional surgery and prevent unnecessary hospitalization.

“This successful event would not be possible without the leadership and dedication of our volunteer committee members. Their hard work reflects the community support of our local hospital and enhances our comprehensive services allowing patients to stay close to home,” said Vicki Lewis, president of Aurora Lakeland Medical Center and Aurora Memorial Hospital of Burlington.

This year’s Honorary Chairperson was Dr. Garth Schneider, a dedicated physician who has served the community for the past 28 years in both family and internal medicine
