On Dec. 3, 2005, the Auxiliary of West Suburban Medical Center held its 22nd annual Celebration dinner dance at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The benefit upheld its tradition of elegance with festive holiday decorations, beautiful gowns, superb food and dancing to the music of the Opus 4 Jazz Orchestra.
Special features included a silent auction with 55 items ranging from a lush tropical condo to a jacket worn by rock star Alice Cooper while on world tour. A 2006 Mazda Miata convertible (or $25,000) was won by Lynn Hudson.
Proceeds from the benefit will contribute to an Auxiliary pledge of $380,000 for a new GI procedural room in the department of gastroenterology. Co-chairs of the event were Dorothy Wood and Lynn Hudson.
