Mark your calendar for the 3rd Annual Infinity Ball on Saturday, September 29 at 6 p.m. at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, 900 Wood Road, Kenosha.
This black-tie optional event features gourmet foods, and live and silent auctions. In addition, attendees will be able to dance and enjoy the music of Second Opinion. Honorary Chairpersons of this year’s event is Giuseppe “Joe” Garretto, DO, a dedicated physician at Aurora Medical Center in Kenosha, and his wife, Jean Garretto. Dr. Garretto serves the community in internal medicine and Jean is an active member on hospital committees.
“We look forward to hosting an event community members can enjoy while helping to support the needs of our local hospital,” said Michelle Weber, foundation development officer at Aurora Health Care Foundation. “I’ve heard from many individuals in the community how pleased they are that our medical center has the equipment and services they need so close to home. It’s so rewarding to know that this event is helping to make a difference for everyone who relies on Aurora Medical Center in Kenosha.”
Proceeds from the Infinity Ball will be directed toward purchasing a second digital mammography unit. Digital mammography offers patients a more comfortable testing experience with images that can be reviewed almost immediately. As more individuals need a mammogram, an additional unit is needed to accommodate the schedules of patients and ensure they receive this life-saving test in a timely manner.
Tickets are $100 per guest. Sponsorship and advertising opportunities are also available. To purchase tickets or for more information, please call (262) 741-2600.
