Chautauqua Hospice and Palliative Care (CHPC) invites the community to celebrate its 7th Annual Gala, “Welcome to the Carnival!” An evening of fun, midway games, and prizes will take place on Saturday, May 21 at Chautauqua Suites Meeting and Expo Center in Mayville.

This fundraising event has become a must-attend for many in the community. Proceeds from the Gala allow CHPC to provide additional services and therapies that insurances do not cover.

As always, all guests are welcome to dress up for this circus-themed party.
The evening will begin at 6pm followed by dinner at 7pm. Attendees will enjoy a beautifully decorated hall with a Carnival theme and have the opportunity to ‘step right up’ and be photographed for a lasting memento. Along with themed games guests will enjoy a silent auction to explore before dinner. A delicious dinner and dessert will be served. Following dinner a live auction will be held followed by dancing to music provided by Afterdark DJ Service. A cash bar will be available for refreshments.

“This year’s Gala is more than a fun-filled night under the ‘Big Top’–it’s a return to having fun for the sake of fun, seeing old friends, and getting out and cutting a rug on the dance floor!” said BJ Buonaiuto, community events coordinator at CHPC. “So grab your top hat, your clown nose, and let’s show everyone how much fun it can be when we’re all together!.”

Sponsors for the event include The Chautauqua Suites Meeting and Expo Center, Bliss Hill Photography, B. E. Strong 716, Cummins Engine Plant, Francesca’s Floral Design, Afterdark DJ Service and Event Management,The Sophisticated Shoulder, Hansen Financial, Southern Tier Pediatrics, Jamestown’s Rental Properties, Fredonia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Community Bank, Carlson Financial, Chautauqua County Humane Society, Full Moon Rising Bakery, and Hitchcock Signs.
