    On behalf of the Mon Health Medical Center Auxiliary, it is my pleasure to extend an invitation to you to join us for an evening of magic and philanthropy. The much-anticipated event, “Spellbound: A Magical Evening”, will be held at the Morgantown Marriott at Waterfront Place on Saturday, October 28, 2023.

    The evening will commence with a cocktail hour at 5:30 PM. As you mingle with friends and fellow guests, savor a sip of your favorite beverage that awaits you. This initial hour will set the tone for the enhancement that awaits you as you step into a world filled with magic and wonder. At 6:30 PM, the doors to the grand ballroom will open, ushering you into a realm of mystique and awe. The event center will be transformed into a haven of elegance, where decor has carefully been curated to embody the theme of our evening. A show full of awe will captivate you while a savory meal will delight your taste buds. There are even more surprises throughout the evening as well. Every sense is sure to be awakened tonight from the live band to the meal to the floral aroma.

    The Ball of the Year is an opportunity to not only revel in an evening of enchantment with friends, family, and community, but also to make a difference in the lives of those in need. We will have many magnificent items for you to bid on along with other fun ways to raise up our hospital with your generosity. As we come together on this occasion, we aim to raise funds for this noble cause – supporting Mon Health Medical Center in its tireless efforts to provide exceptional healthcare to those around us – perhaps even including ourselves and loved ones. Your participation and generosity will make a remarkable impact on the lives of countless individuals within our community. Your support will directly contribute to advancing medical research, improving patient care, and enhancing the overall well-being of our community. For that, we thank you.

    Remember, while our theme is magical and revolves around wonder, this is not a Halloween event. We encourage you to embrace the elegance of the occasion by adhering to the black-tie dress code. Let your attire reflect the sophistication and grace that befits an evening of this magnitude. With great anticipation, we look forward to your presence at this year’s annual Ball of the Year ~ “Spellbound: A Magical Evening”. Together, we can weave a tapestry of compassion and create miracles that will resonate for years to come for our community – and loved ones.


    Yours sincerely,

    Katie Gyorko
