Saint Luke’s East Hospital – Boo Ball

Elvis was in the building – the Pavilion at John Knox Village – on October 26th. The Pavilion itself was transformed into a casino for a Viva Las Vegas evening, featuring live and silent auctions, dancing and a variety of games. The event was the Boo Ball, a benefit for Saint Luke’s East Hospital. Proceeds are earmarked for the purchase of new stroke perfusion software. Judy and Richard Hastings were the honorary chairmen, and Ashley Boswell and Katie Hammons served as the co-chairmen.
