Don’t miss the most exciting fun-filled evening in Shelby County! HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital still has seats available at a brand new spacious venue, so make your reservation now for the eighth annual Red Event.
Doors open for the HSHS Good Shepherd Foundation’s Red Event at 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 15, at the Shelbyville Event Center, 316 W. S. Sixth Street. The event will begin with a silent auction and fine wine or beer from the Niemerg Family Winery in Findlay. The Niemerg Winery makes all of their own wine, and all proceeds from our cash bar will be donated back to the hospital.
Make sure you have time to check out the large silent auction with special items such as two season tickets to the Little Theatre in Sullivan, a week of camping from the US Corps of Engineers, a cabin studio apartment weekend at Whitetail Crossing Cabins, two tickets to see the Cubs at Wrigley, or four boxed-seat Cardinal baseball tickets donated by Dr. Oligschlaeger.
Bring plenty of cash to this event! The event will hold a live auction called ‘Bids for Dibs’ in which guests will be allowed to bid for the first to be served dinner from our delicious buffet. This year’s buffet will be catered by Deb’s Catering and will feature roast beef and chicken.
The wait staff is comprised of HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital colleagues. The staff will refill your drinks and make certain that you have a wonderful time during the evening for tips. The waitress with the greatest amount of tips will win a special prize, and all tips will be donated back to the hospital.
After dinner, there will be a lively game of chance with heads or tails which is an elimination game. The hospital will split the pot with the final lucky winner.
Entertainment will follow heads or tails. Guests will enjoy the clean ventriloquism, music and comedic act of Taylor Mason. Mason is originally from central Illinois. In 1990, he won the grand prize for Star Search which was hosted by Ed McMahon. Now, he is a veteran performer of music, comedy and ventriloquism who has been making people laugh for decades. He performs regularly for Disney and on stages all over the world.
Sponsors for the Red Event include Busey Bank, Lithia Springs Marina, Shelbyville Manor and Hawthorne Inn, Shelby County State Bank, Lockart and Green Funeral Homes, Shelbyville Insurance Services and Consociate-Dansig, St. John’s Associated Pathologists, and Prairie Heart Institute of Illinois.
Reservations for this year’s event will be $70 per person, or you can buy a table for ten for $600. Reservations may be made calling the hospital at 217-774-6418. This year’s event will help the hospital build programs, provide training and add the necessary equipment for HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital to continue to provide the best possible care for you close to home.
