Hillcrest 'Night on the Hill" offers Valentine's Day date night destination
McCOOK, Neb. – Planning a fun Valentine outing with your significant other just became a bit easier for residents of Southwest Nebraska and Northwest Kansas. The Hillcrest Foundation is once again hosting a “Night on the Hill” fundraiser which will take place Saturday, Feb. 12.
The event promises to include marvelous food (smoked brisket and pork, along with sides, salad, and dessert) and amazing entertainment that will have attendees laughing, singing, and dancing. The talented Dueling Pianos by Fun Pianos will make a return appearance from the 2020 Night on the Hill event, and they promise to engage the crowd with their unique brand of high energy and a wide range of musical genres.
“The last time we held Night on the Hill, everyone had such a fun time. The only complaint was that it didn’t last long enough, so we’ve added more time to the entertainment this year,” said organizer Kristi Daum.
A table for eight includes dinner and the show for $600. The doors at Memorial Auditorium open at 5:30 p.m., with the buffet dinner beginning at 6 p.m. There will be a cash bar.
Tables can be reserved by contacting any Hillcrest Foundation board member: Mike Skolout, Shary Skiles, Brian Esch, Jacque Reiners, Bruce Hoffman, Kristie Daum, Bill Graves, or Randy Dean, or by contacting James Foster, Hillcrest Administrator. There are a limited number of tables available, and organizers expect them to sell out quickly.
Balcony seating for the show only is $20. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. General admission balcony tickets can be purchased at MNB Bank, or online.
Hillcrest Foundation helps support the residents and staff of Hillcrest in a wide range of areas. A recent gift, combined with a grant from the Nebraska Community Foundation’s Connecting Elders with Family program and the McCook Community Foundation Fund, provided smart TVs in every resident’s room. The technology made it easier for residents to connect with families during the pandemic, as well as view live-stream events and expands the offering of movies and television shows for residents.
One of the foundation’s top priorities is to provide tuition assistance for staff to further their education or to complete certifications.
