Appetizing food and dancing to the sounds of Encore are sure to warm attendees of the winter gala. The only chill of the night will come from a spectacular ice sculpture created by Jon Lizer of Custom Catering in Seaford. Proceeds from the dinner dance will become part of the annual donation made by the Auxiliary to Nanticoke Health Services. Last year, the Auxiliary provided financial support for the Charity Endowment Prescription Fund, new beds for the Maternity Unit, and the construction of the Cancer Care Center.
