Tickets are going fast for the 17 annual Camellia Ball. This premier black-tie event will be held Saturday, Feb. 5 at 8 p.m. at the Civic Center of Anderson. Hosted by the AnMed Health Foundation, the Camellia Ball is a fundraising gala supporting the hundreds of patients served by AnMed Health Pediatric Therapy Works, a rehabilitation program for children and young adults with development disorders and delays. 

“Not only is this a fun event for our community, but it is the largest fundraiser for AnMed Health Pediatric Therapy Works,” said Moyer Albergotti, chair of the 2011 Camellia Ball Committee. “It’s an excellent opportunity for people to learn about the amazing work they do, the precious children and families they help, and to ensure that families on this journey continue to have access to the services at Pediatric Therapy Works,” she added.

Each year Pediatric Therapy Works provides specialized physical, speech and occupational therapy to about 600 children who have developmental disorders and delays, such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, Down’s syndrome, autism and other genetic neurological conditions. Through specialized therapy, these children can learn skills to optimize their independence and reach their full potential.

This year’s event will feature a buffet of gourmet hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, dancing and entertainment from the Band of Oz.

Tickets for the Camellia Ball are available for $250 per couple, $125 per person or $75 per person for those 35 years old or younger. Sponsorships are also available and range from $500 to $2,500.
