18th Annual Harvest Ball a Roaring Success

Originally published in the Pope County Tribune, October 17, 2022

The Minnewaska House Brewing Co.+Grill was filled to capacity on Friday, Oct. 7 for the 18th annual Glacial Ridge Health System Auxiliary’s Harvest Ball. This year, the fundraising event featured a “Roaring 20s” theme with men dressed to the hilt and women dressed like the “flappers” of the 1920s. The annual event was a success and raised money to help purchase a new bone density scanner in the Radiology Department at GRHS.

After taking a few years off due to the pandemic, local couples and friends were ready to participate in the popular fundraiser again this year. The Auxiliary of the Glacial Ridge Health System has been supporting the hospital’s efforts since 1939 when the group was organized by Ann Bickle. She created the group with community service in mind and it became the first Hospital Auxiliary in the State of Minnesota.
