More than 225 guests attended the 14th annual “A Night with Papa Luigi,” raising more than $27,000 for the Huron Regional Medical Center Foundation, according to Tom Light, HRMC Foundation board member and committee chair.

Papa Luigi hosted a Masquerade Ball on March 2 at the Huron Event Center. Guests and local “celebrity” waiters and dressed in ball gowns, tuxedos and a wide variety of decorative masks while raising money for HRMC’s maternity unit.

“Once again, we had an incredible response from the community both with advanced ticket sales and the night of the event,” explained Light. “We are so thankful for everyone who attended and helped and showed their support of HRMC through their generosity.”

Funds raised through dinner tickets, tips and other donations will be used to help the hospital purchase four new birthing beds for the maternity unit, which is located on the third floor of the hospital.

The 50-50 drawing was back this year along with the heads and tails game and the Stan’s Feed and Grain table, sponsored by Stan Kopfmann, generously donated back all of their winnings on both contests. An auction with prizes donated by local businesses helped raise the total above $27,000.

The purpose of the HRMC Foundation is to bring the gifts of the community together to strengthen, support and enhance the HRMC system of care.

Papa Luigi is one of two major fundraising events that benefit the Foundation — and ultimately health care in the area. Pictures from this year’s Papa Luigi event will be posted within the next two weeks on the Foundation website at www.hrmcfoundation.org.
