Posted March 14, 2011

Save the date April 1, no fooling… come have a ball! April 1st

It's a community event raising funds to support medical care for the elderly in Southeast Idaho provided by ISU's Family Medicine Residency Program.

Tickets are available for the Medicine Ball in Holt Arena, an evening of delicious food, no-host bar and live music.   All proceeds will support care for the elderly in Southeast Idaho provided by the Idaho State University Family Medicine Residency Program.   Enjoy live music with "Kyd J" and "Band on Demand" as well as talented local performers.

There is something for everyone with three dining options priced from $100 to $10.

• Canopy's: catered by Chartwells, social hour and dining beginning at 6 p.m. $100 per person.  Buy your tickets early as these sold out last year.

• Tavern on the Turf, a lively, relaxed dining experience with entertainment at 6:30 p.m. For $35 per person, enjoy a wide variety of menu selections from Pocatello's finest restaurants.  Dessert is at Neapolitan's.

 • New this year is "Neapolitan's" for dessert only and entertainment beginning at 8 p.m., $10 per person.

The masters of ceremony are ISU's Libby Howe, well-known local musician Mike Sanders and ISU's football coach Mike Kramer. 

The Family Medicine Residency Program brings new doctors and clinical pharmacists to the state of Idaho and is one of the few clinics accepting new Medicaid patients. Currently, there are 17 residents in the program.

This year we are raising funds to benefit the older citizens in our community who depend on Family Practice for their health care.  A team of skilled educators provides specialized training to Family Medicine doctors who are taking care of aging patients.

The honorary chair of this year's Medicine Ball is Linda Hatzenbuehler, Vice President, ISU Division of Health Sciences. Hatzenbuheler, along with a host of co-chairmen, invite the community to the Medicine Ball. 

Come to the party!  Reserve the dining option of your choice now. The Medicine Ball sold out last year. Don't wait–early sales have been excellent.
