Calvert Dance Band, Nightlife to Play at Hospital Ball Nov.10
As a special added feature, the Calvert Dance Band will perform during the cocktail reception at Calvert Memorial Hospital Foundation’s ball on Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro. Proceeds from the popular black-tie gala will benefit the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care at CMH.
The Calvert Dance Band is an all-volunteer 17-piece swing band that has been playing in Southern Maryland for over 20 years. The band plays various styles of jazz and swing for dancing and listening and is always adding to its playlist.
“We are so excited the Calvert Dance Band will be part of our ball this year,” said Kasia Sweeney, interim director for the CMH Foundation, “and very grateful to them for generously donating their time to our cause.”
Headlining the evening’s entertainment is the Washington, DC-based band NightLife. Excellent vocals and superior musicianship combined with their high-energy performance bring your favorite songs to life and is sure to get everyone up on the dance floor.
The hospital ball, which celebrates its 24th anniversary this year, has become the must-attend event of the year and the place to see and be seen. Tickets are limited and going fast. Those who are interested call the CMH Foundation office at 410-535-8178.
Throughout its history, the ball has generated over $1.2 million for medical technology and equipment at CMH. This year’s proceeds will directly benefit the breast center and allow the purchase of a new, dedicated breast ultrasound that will increase access, reduce wait times and provide superior imaging quality for making diagnoses and performing biopsies.
Organizers say the annual fundraiser promises to live up to its reputation as Calvert County’s premier social event. Guests will be treated to an extravagant dinner featuring exceptional entrees and delectable desserts paired with wonderful wines.
