Hospice to host big gala

Hospice of Kitsap County will host its first annual benefit gala on Oct. 26.

The Spellbinders Ball will be a magical evening featuring fine dining and extraordinary performances by aerial acrobats, musicians, and storytellers. Tickets for this formal event, which will be held at the historic Admiral Theatre in Bremerton, are now on sale.

Attendees will be welcomed to the gala by roaming musicians, members of Seattle-based band A Cedar Suede, who will be performing gypsy- style as they wander throughout the theatre. A Cedar Suede will take the stage and continue to perform their unique, mysterious blend of classical gypsy jazz throughout the night. An aerial acrobat from Animate Objects Physical Theater will perform and dangle from the rafters of the theatre as the thrilled guests watch from below. Storytellers and actors will perform original pieces written by hospice nurses in Kitsap County.

In addition to the food and performances, the evening will feature an exciting, high-stakes raffle for ten highly valued gift baskets. With only 100 raffle tickets available for purchase for $25 each, attendees will have a very high chance of winning one of the coveted prizes. Attendees to The Spellbinders Ball will also have the opportunity to “Raise the Paddle”, becoming a part of the story of Hospice of Kitsap County by supporting programs and services with a donation.

Tickets to attend The Spellbinders Ball are $65 per person, which includes a champagne cocktail and a seasonal three-course dinner. There are two levels of VIP packages available. A Front Row VIP table costs $1,000 and includes a front-row table for four, four raffle tickets, and a bottle of wine to share.

For $500, you can reserve a Terrace VIP table for four with premier center seating and a bottle of wine to share.
