The 9th annual Joie de Vie Gala is all set for Sunday night at Ironstone Vineyard which will include a silent auction, dinner, entertainment and the presentation of the Irving Symons Award.
Gail Witzlsteiner, the Director of Development and Public Relations for Sonora Regional Medical Center, was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Those who support the Joie de Vie Gala will be assisting cancer patients with their unmet financial needs. While the current economic crunch has been challenging, it has added an even greater burden to those who are too ill to work.
This, the 9th, now annual Joie de Vie Gala, includes a silent auction, dinner, entertainment and the presentation of the Irving Symons Award. New to Gala this year will be the elimination of the after-dinner musical entertainment.
“We have found that our guests would prefer to get home a little earlier, as the Gala is on a Sunday night,” stated Witzlsteiner.
The 2009 Irving Symons Award will be presented to Joe Martin for his outstanding, long-term service to the community. Martin, a life-long, 2nd generation resident of Tuolumne County, was the owner of T-5 trucking and Joe Martin Logging. Martin served the community and the hospital for many years.
The Irving Symons Award, named after the late Irving Symons, recognizes long-term, outstanding community service. Former recipients include Irving Symons, Frank Salel, H. Randolph Holder, Robert Cutler, Pete Kerns and Pete and Sue Kleinert.
A few seats are still available for this black tie event. Make your reservations by contacting the Development Office at (209) 532-5029.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:46, 7:46 and 8:46am.
