"We encourage everyone to dust off their boots, dig out their denim and get ready for an evening of dancing, food, fun and entertainment," said Robin Morgan, OMC Events Director. "The Blue Jean Ball is the Foundation's signature event and the proceeds go to support the delivery of quality health care at OMC, something the whole community benefits from."
In 2011, more than 500 people attended the Blue Jean Ball, raising a total of $50,506.
Tickets for the event are $50 and may be purchased at the OMC Foundation at 401 Washington Avenue or at the OMC Public Relations Department at No. 16 Parkway Shopping Center. The admission ticket includes food, drinks and entertainment. Sponsorships, which include benefits such as reserved seating in the "Sheriff's Tent," are also available.
This year's headlining entertainment is The Vikki McGee Band, sponsored by West Plains Bank and Trust Company. In addition, one lucky winner will take home a real diamond, courtesy of Carter's Jewel Chest in Mountain Home, Arkansas. Guests will have the chance to purchase tickets to take part in the contest at the event.
There will also be a silent auction that includes electronics, vacations and trips, home goods and much more.
