The St. Luke's Volunteer Core has planned an evening of dining and dancing and, new this year, a raffle drawing for its annual St. Luke's Winter Ball on Saturday, Dec. 12, at the Sun Valley Inn Limelight Room.

The raffle will include eight prizes, and tickets are $10 or 12 for $100. In addition, a paddle donation round will take place for dinner guests. Tickets for the entire black-tie-optional event are $150 and include cocktails at 6 p.m., a three-course dinner at 7 p.m. and dancing at 9 p.m.

This year, the holiday tradition expands to include a Junior Patron ticket for $25. Junior Patrons may attend the event at 9 p.m. and will receive a complimentary glass of champagne, enjoy a dessert buffet and dance to the live music of Boise's High Street Band.

"We are very excited about the new edition of all members of the community," said Theresa Pemberton, Winter Ball chair. "It will be a very special event."

At last year's ball, the volunteer core made a commitment to raise $100,000 for the Women's Imaging Center. The core raised $35,000 from the ball last year and hopes to donate another $25,000 to the center this year.

"We will have a current breast cancer patient to share her story with the audience and how the Women's Imaging Center helped her," Pemberton said. "It is an inspiring story and donors will see and hear the difference they are making."

For details, call 727-8406.
