JPMF Preparing for Award Winning Performance

Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) will host its annual benefit ball on Friday, October 28, 2011, from 8:00 pm to midnight at La Cita Country Club in Titusville. This year’s theme is “Hollywood Nights & Bollywood Dreams…A Night of Fantasy!” Guests will walk down the Hall of Fame reminiscent of old Hollywood and then cross over into the magic of Bollywood with high energy music, brilliant colors and alluring entertainment.

Underwriting committee chair and JPMF board chairman, Richard Boggs of Boggs Gases in Titusville, has begun fundraising efforts toward the $150,000 goal. Proceeds will benefit the prevention and treatment of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic conditions. Event co-chairs are Dr. Biju and Lisa Mathews, and Jim and Katherine Musick.

Other benefit ball committee members are Kelley Broome, Mary Coleman, Cheryl D’Cruz, Rachel Hobgood, Dot Hudson, Lisa McAlpine, Tricia Parrish, Laurie Smirl, Ann Snodgrass, Tara Sutherland, N. Christine Sylvester, Barbara Terhune and Holly Woolsey.

Tickets to the event are $100 per person and sponsorship opportunities begin at $350. Sponsors will receive special recognition according to level of contribution. For sponsorship and/or event information, call Jess Parrish Medical Foundation at 321-269-4066 or email
