Monday, April 23rd, 2012
West Virginia Wesleyan College and St. Joseph’s Hospital will host the sixth annual Gala on Saturday, June 2 at the Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, West Virginia. Step back in time and experience the old world elegance of a “Venetian Masquerade Affair” in Venezia, Italia.
Community Host and Hostess Steve and Kathy Foster will greet the guests as they enter the famed “Doges Palace” where the intrigue and opulence of an 18th century Masquerade will be recreated in the “Piazza de Stonewall.” A decadent Venetian feast, high stakes in the “Ridotto Casino” and a silent auction in the “Mercati de Rialta” are just some of the highlights of this year’s event. As the bells toll in the Campanile, the ballroom will come alive with the music of No Bad Ju Ju.
A ‘Venetian Masquerade Affair “will begin at 6 p.m. with a reception followed by dinner at 7 p.m. Attire is Venetian elegant, black tie optional, with masques encouraged. Sponsorships are available and include the “Doges Palace Benefactor” and the “San Marco Supporter.” All proceeds will benefit the Howard D. and Audrey Holden Naylor Nursing Simulation Lab at West Virginia Wesleyan and monitoring equipment for St. Joseph’s Hospital’s Post-Operative Care Unit.
