Claire A. Bradshaw | 2/20/13

The 3rd annual Heart Beat Ball will be held at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts on Saturday, February 23 from 5:30 – 10:00 p.m.  This redesigned event features a new location, hearty new menu, and musical entertainment all evening including a fabulous dance band!

This dressy affair and fundraiser is hosted by the Dr. Mary Fisher Medical Foundation.  All proceeds will benefit the new Women’s Health Program at Pagosa Springs Medical Center that is scheduled to open this summer.
Musical opener will be Tim Sullivan, award-winning singer/songwriter, on acoustic guitar.  Then Bob Hemenger, prominent local saxophonist, will perform.

Dance band Vanilla Pop will take the stage at 8:00 p.m. for dancing and entertainment.  “The coolest, hippest, most swingin-est band around," was written in the Santa Fe Reporter.  Vanilla Pop is an exciting and diverse performance oriented show, that can cover a variety of music from 40’s standards, disco hits, eighties classics, and TV themes. 
They have been chosen as one of the top bands in New Mexico for corporate events and weddings.

Local volunteer Tari Woods, also the event founder, and Tracey Kirschstein, owner of La Bella Boutique, have been working tirelessly on the silent auction.  Over 30 businesses and organizations have provided merchandise that includes gift certificates, gift baskets, jewelry, airline voucher, artwork, and a 2-night stay at The Ecolux Hot Springs.  There is something for everyone!!!

The Women’s Health Program is a new endeavor scheduled to be added to the services of the Pagosa Springs Medical Center.  The program will include a digital mammography machine, specialists in breast surgery and reconstruction, specially renovated recovery and treatment space, and free screening services for low-income patients.  Fundraising is underway for this initiative by the Dr. Mary Fisher Medical Foundation and more will be revealed at the Heart Beat Ball event.
