Heart Of Gold dinner planned

ESCANABA — The 22nd annual OSF HealthCare Foundation Heart of Gold dinner will be held Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Island Resort & Casino Convention Center.

The event features a seven-course dinner prepared and presented by chefs from across the Upper Peninsula — all members of the Upper Michigan Chapter of the American Culinary Federation. The menu for each year’s dinner remains a surprise and is unveiled at the start of the evening.

“The dinner is a culinary experience unlike any other in our community,” said Jean Arvan, director of philanthropy at OSF HealthCare St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group. “Chefs present each course and share with guests how the course was prepared and why it was chosen. The dinner also features a selection of fine wines chosen specifically to complement the courses.”

Proceeds from the dinner benefit OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group and support renovations to improve patient care and comfort and the purchase of new medical equipment. More than $14 million has been donated to date. This year’s proceeds will be used to purchase new beds for the St. Francis Hospital Sleep Center.

Reservations for the Heart of Gold dinner are required. For more information or to make a reservation, contact the OSF HealthCare Foundation office at 786-5707, ext. 5516 or visit www.osfhealthcarefoundation.org/heart-of-gold.
