Can’t wait to see everyone at the 2018 Poinsettia Ball! Click here for the list of live and silent auction items and our gracious sponsors.

Ball FBRogene and Jean Pekarek have been chosen as honorary chairpersons at the 2018 Burgess Foundation Poinsettia Ball and Holiday Brunch.  The Brunch is Friday, November 30 at 11 a.m. at St. John Catholic Church in Onawa and the Poinsettia Ball is Saturday, December 8 at WinnaVegas in Sloan starting at 5:30 p.m.

The Pekarek’s have been active supporters of the Burgess Foundation for over four decades. Jean supported Fern Garred in the creation of the Poinsettia Ball 34 years ago when it was first held in the Blencoe gymnasium.

These celebrations attract hundreds of supporters for fun, great food, live entertainment, and silent and live auctions. Proceeds this year will go toward the purchase of a new CT machine for the radiology department.

Reservations are $50 each for brunch and $75 each for the ball if purchased by November 19. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for those wanting to contribute even more towards these incredible technological upgrades that will benefit many area residents.

Country Knot is set to entertain during the Brunch. Guests at the Ball will enjoy the music of DJ Jimy Mac and comedy and magic of Jeff Quinn. This year’s theme is “Kicking up our Heels”.  Contests at the Poinsettia Ball will include highest and most unique heels and craziest socks and best tie.

This year’s auction items include two tickets to The Ellen DeGeneres Show with a $500 travel voucher. There also will be autographed sports memorabilia, overnights stays, casino packages, and dozens of other items.
