Fundraising party

ELIZABETHTOWN — The Elizabethtown Community Hospital Auxiliary is making plans for its eighth annual Dinner@8 fundraiser on Aug. 11. This year offers a break from tradition, with one large cocktail party for all participants as the main event.

Dinner@8 is a way of raising funds by involving members of the community. Historically, a series of private parties took place at the home of event hosts. Those invited to private parties were also welcome to attend a complimentary cocktail party to which everyone was invited.

"We understand that people are incredibly busy in the summer with family commitments, vacations and other events," said auxiliary member Gayle Alexander. "This year, we intend to make it simple. Event hosts don't have to commit to hosting a party at their home. Instead they can attend the cocktail party on Aug. 11 with their friends and simply enjoy the evening."
