Hannibal Regional Auxiliary hosted the fourth annual Glitz Gala Jewelry Auction at the Hannibal Arts Council onThursday, Oct. 5.

The Glitz Gala, officially sponsored by the Century 21 Broughton team, raised $13,000 to support Hannibal Regional Auxiliary. Jim Quinlin of Quinlin Auction Services led the live auction and the emcee for the evening was Rajah Maples from KHQA.

Guests were treated to appetizers from Fiddlestiks, wine from the Hannibal County Market and music from Michael Gaines. Attendees bid on 55 exquisite jewelry pieces, which were donated by various community members and a three-piece designer collection, complements of Ava Goldworks.

Guests were also entered into a raffle to win one of seven different prizes. The raffle prizes were: a Kate Spade purse, a Michael Kors purse, an Eagle Creek suitcase, sunglasses from the HRMG Vision Institute, a gift card for a pedicure to the Powder Room and a photo session from Photos To Remember.

“The Auxiliary’s accomplishments are a reflection of teamwork and the community’s generosity and support is essential to our success,” said Alicia Rollins, Director of Guest and Volunteer Services. “The community’s continued participation is what enables us to continue enriching lives and making our community better.”

The proceeds from the Glitz Gala will continue to help the Auxiliary fulfill their pledge to the linear accelerator portion of Hannibal Regional Foundation’s Believe Campaign. This equipment has brought new technologies to the community and offers state-of-the-art cancer treatments and procedures at the James E. Cary Cancer Center.

Hannibal Regional Auxiliary was formed to help patients, families and visitors in a variety of ways and contribute to the community in 1993. Today, with more than 260 members, the Auxiliary donates approximately 25,000 hours of service each year. The Auxiliary provides service in several areas including Judy’s Boutique Gift Shop, James E. Cary Cancer Center, Caring Cup coffee bar, reception desk and waiting rooms. For more information, contact Rollins at 573-248-5272 or visit hrhonline.org .
