Ball co-chairs John & Danielle Troutman, Mary Beth and Will Donovan

The Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation’s 34th annual Valentine Ball was held February 11 at Tabby Place. More than 400 guests, many of whom had attended pre-ball dinner parties, enjoyed dessert, dancing and a silent auction while helping the Foundation raise over $200,000 toward a new workforce development program that will include a state-of-the-art, on-campus education center and a freestanding daycare center at Beaufort Memorial.

“This year’s event marked a new fundraising focus that is critical to the hospital’s future,” said BMH Foundation Associate Vice President and Chief Development Officer Kim Yawn. “We’re committed to investing in our employees’ long-term growth and success, as well as training new generations of health care providers to meet the growing needs of the community.”

First hosted in 1990, the Valentine Ball has raised almost $6 million for new technology, services and facility improvements for Beaufort Memorial and its patients over the past 33 years.
