KRMC Foundation launching Black Tie Gala event
KINGMAN – The Kingman Regional Medical Center Foundation is launching a new event, the Black Tie Gala, to be held March 10 at the Aquarius Casino Resort in Laughlin.
Proceeds from the gala will benefit the hospital’s labor and delivery unit, which plans to have an educational program about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS.
Staff also hopes to replace the bassinets in the OB nursery, as the units currently in use are over 25 years old.
The Black Tie Gala will include a three-course dinner, dancing, drinks, photos and entertainment. It starts at 5:30 p.m.
Sponsors will provide premium auction and raffle items. To ensure the quality of this event, KRMC Foundation will limit the number of available tickets.
The foundation is dedicated to giving a healthy start to newborns and families in our community. Funds raised will support the development and implementation of the Infant Sleep Education and SIDS Prevention program and the purchase of new bassinets.
