52nd Annual Holly Ball Held in Bridgeport

BRIDGEPORT -

For the 52nd year the Auxiliary to the United Hospital Center sponsored the Bridgeport Holly Ball on Saturday evening.

This year it was held at the Bridgeport Conference Center. The Holly Ball dinner and dance raises money for projects at UHC. This year the money is going towards a tissue equivalent phantom torso for the UHC School of Radiologic Technology that will be used for training.

The co-chairs of the event said there are some changes to this year's Holly Ball.

"This year it's a plated meal…before we had a buffet. And here you are in high heels, trying to balance a plate of food…you don't have to do that it's a plated meal now" said Carol Gaynor, co-chair of the Auxiliary.

"This is the first time it's actually been semi-formal, always before it had been a black tie event" said Lyda Lister, co-chair of the Auxiliary.

Stacy Moniot and Don Graye were the emcee's for the event.
