Blue Jean Ball to include diamond giveaway
Champagne and diamonds will be a part of the Ozarks Medical Center Seventh
Annual Blue Jean Ball at 6 p.m. Sept. 12. Attendees will have the opportunity
to purchase a limited number of champagne glasses, each containing a single
stone. One glass will contain a half carat diamond, valued at $2,000.
The diamond has been donated by Carter’s Jewel Chest in Mountain
Home, Arkansas. According to OMC Foundation Executive Director Ward Franz,
100 glasses will be available for purchase the evening of the event for
$25 each. Guests will then have the opportunity to have their stone tested
at the event to learn if they have the real diamond. The winner will take
home the diamond.
The Blue Jean Ball is the signature event of the OMC Foundation and proceeds
go to support local health care. Tickets are $50 and may be purchased
at the OMC Foundation at No. 12 Parkway Center. The admission ticket includes
food, drinks and entertainment. Sponsorships, which include benefits such
as reserved seating in the “Sheriff’s Tent,” are also
available. In 2014, more than 450 people attended the Blue Jean Ball,
raising a total of $67,000 for local health care. For more information
on tickets or sponsorships contact the OMC Foundation at 417-853-5200.
