Lake Regional Hospital Auxiliary Presents 41st Annual Ball

Tickets are on sale now for Lake Regional’s 41st Annual Ball taking place Saturday, Oct. 7, at The Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark.

The Lake Regional Hospital Auxiliary hosts the ball, which this year has a masquerade theme. The festivities will begin at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour, followed by dinner and dancing. Flashback KC, an energetic eight-piece band with a three-piece horn section and outstanding vocalists, will provide the entertainment, and dinner will be a four-course gourmet meal. Individual tickets are $125.

This year’s honorary chairs are Lake Regional CEO Michael E. Henze and his wife, Gerri. Henze is retiring from Lake Regional Health System this fall after 27 years leading the organization.

“We have made many fond memories at the Annual Ball and look forward to celebrating with people who support local health care,” Henze said. “It’s a fun time, and we encourage everyone to come out and share in the excitement that comes from making a positive impact in our community.”

Throughout its history, the Annual Ball has raised more than $2 million for Lake Regional Health System, benefitting the Cancer Center, Cardiac Catheterization Lab, Emergency Department, Family Birth Center, Surgery and more.

All proceeds from the 41st Annual Ball will benefit Lake Regional Outpatient Services, which includes ambulatory surgery. With more than 26,400 visits annually, the busy department will be remodeled to enhance patient comfort and privacy and to accommodate the growing number of individuals who require outpatient services.

Sponsorship packages are available ranging from $500 to $10,000. All sponsors will receive preferred seating. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Terri Hall at 573-348-8153 or visit To learn more about the Lake Regional Hospital Auxiliary, visit
