The St. Luke's Volunteer Core presents the Sun Valley Autumn Gala on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Limelight Room at the Sun Valley Inn. This is always a memorable event and includes dinner, dancing, and a silent auction and gift bags.

With the proceeds, the Volunteer Core plans to purchase new defibrillators for the hospital. St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center sees some 2,000 patients per year with symptoms of cardiac arrest. Technology experts and cardiac specialists around the country agree that the best way to ensure effectiveness and speed for the best possible outcome is to regularly update diagnostic medical equipment.

Cocktail hour begins at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m.

Entertainment will be provided by a 12-piece horn-driven show band with the catchy and slightly misleading name of Five Guys Named Moe. That's right. A 12-piece band called Five Guys named Moe that even has a few women.

This band is a huge hit in its hometown of Portland, Oregon. First, during cocktail hour the band breaks out its three-piece ensemble for jazzy standards. After dinner, for the dancers in the crowd, the Moes will play a little rock 'n roll, soul and Motown. Then get ready for some retro dance hits and, finally, clear the tables disco.

Tickets are $175 per person, or $400 for the patron level. Raffle tickets are also available to enter the drawing to win a 42" flat panel TV. The cost for a raffle ticket is $5 each or 12 for $50. Winners need not be present to win.
