The event will be Saturday, Sept. 13, 7 p.m. to midnight, at the Country Club of Salisbury. Williams Companies Inc. is the presenting sponsor of the ball.
Tickets are $250 for a couple and $125 for an individual. All proceeds will benefit Rowan Regional’s planned Hospice House. The fundraising goal is $155,000. Last year, the ball raised $151,000 to buy new wireless handheld computers for physician use in the medical center’s emergency department.
