Geary Community Hospital Project



The Geary Community Healthcare Foundation hosted their annual Holiday Glitz Saturday, December 10, 2016 at the Courtyard by Marriott Convention Center.  This year the Holiday Glitz raised the goal of $50,000 to benefit a V-PRO 60 Low Temperature Sterilization System for the Surgery Center at Geary Community Hospital.


Holiday Glitz guests were welcomed to the Convention Center by the festive sounds of the JC Singers from Junction City High School.  Guests then enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails before being seated at their tables for dinner.  


Healthcare Foundation board member Allen Dinkel conducted a live auction that raised $10,725.  Dinner followed the live auction with piano music provided by Dr. Kristi Baker.


Lantern centerpieces were then auctioned off, which added $2,115 toward the total.  Members of the committee Jennifer Craft, Nikki Davies, Sue Frieze, Jody Jenkins, Jaye Otte, Meghan Schoenrock, Patti Schoenrock, Liz Sites, Marilyn Smith, Peggy Stratton, Sharolyn Adams and Jolana Montgomery-Matney assisted in all aspects of putting on the event including decorating the Marriott.  


Guests then took to the dance floor to the music of Mainstreet dance band.


Looking forward, the next Holiday Glitz will be held on Saturday, December 9, 2017.


The Geary Community Healthcare Foundation wishes to thank their generous benefactor, patrons, sponsors and underwriters of the 2016 Holiday Glitz.
