Fire and Ice Gala Heats Up Holidays, Raises Money for Emanuel


Emanuel Medical Center invites Turlock to heat up the holidays and support local hospice services and Jessica’s House, a grief support program for children and teens, at the annual Festival of Trees Gala and Auction.

This year’s theme is “Fire and Ice,” and Emanuel Medical Center will begin accepting reservation Oct. 22 thru Nov. 13 for the Dec. 7 dinner and auction. The black-tie preferred event will be held at the Assyrian American Civic Club at 2618 N. Golden State Blvd., from 5 p.m. to midnight. Valet parking will be provided. Seating is limited and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Festival of Trees is always a special evening,” said John Sigsbury, Emanuel president and CEO. “It’s always wonderful to see so many people in the community come together to support these two important programs, and to celebrate the joy of the holidays together.”

The program includes a social hour and silent auction beginning at 5 p.m. with wine, champagne, premium drafts and hors d’oeuvres. Dinner begins at 7 p.m. with two entrée options: either a boneless beef short rib cooked with a Gorgonzola port wine reduction alongside garlic mashed potatoes swirled with cream cheese and roasted garlic; or a ditalini pasta with tomato confit tossed with Parmigiano-Reggiano and goat cheese then garnished with chives and basil.

After dinner, an exciting live auction kicks off for a variety of valuable items and experiences, then dancing to the music of The Valley Cats continues until midnight.

All proceeds – ticket sales, sponsorships, auction purchases, wine and beer sales and live tree sales – go directly to hospice services and Jessica’s House. Tickets are $200.

For more information, to reserve a table or to donate, contact Emanuel’s Office of Development at (209) 664-5180, or visit their new office at 2881 Geer Rd., Ste. A, in Turlock.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews. This is the rationale behind inquiries about reviews on Google, Facebook, and other online clothing stores for women."
