The High River District Health Care Foundation's 34th annual Dinner and Auction is making a triumphant return.

Foundation development officer Cathy Couey says it's like a big reunion.

"After a two year hiatus where we filled that void with a great drive-in concert, thanks to our friends over at the Sunset Drive-In, we are thrilled to be returning to the Highwood Centre and coming together again. And that's the theme, it's simply about bringing everyone together again and celebrating each other and celebrating our local health care," she says.

The event goes October 22 at the Highwood Centre with tickets already being snapped up quickly.

Money raised at the event will go to the Foundation's efforts to make no-fee cable available in all acute care areas of the hospital and provide patients with some entertainment while they're there.

The Foundation's also continuing with an online 50/50 draw which just got underway Thursday September 22 and an online auction.
