Grammy-Nominated Artist and Comedian Bill Engvall to Entertain Guests at 38th Annual Tri-City Hospital Foundation Diamond Ball Fundraiser

Proceeds will benefit the award-winning Heart and Stroke Care programs

OCEANSIDE, Calif. (Aug. 22, 2018) — From headlining shows in Las Vegas and across the country, to well-known TV performances including “Dancing with the Stars” and “The Bill Engvall Show,” Grammy-nominated artist and comedian Bill Engvall will bring his iconic laughs to Tri-City Hospital Foundation’s 38th Annual Diamond Ball this fall.

The black-tie event, which will be held at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad on Sat., Oct. 27, will raise funds to support the award-winning Heart and Stroke Care programs at Tri-City Medical Center, a community hospital serving North San Diego County.

A special VIP reception with Engvall, delicious hors d’oeuvres and hosted wine, an exquisite three-course dinner, silent and live auction, live music and dancing, and, of course, a hilarious comedy performance by Engvall will all be a part of the celebration.

“We are excited that Bill Engvall will entertain our guests this year,” said Glen Newhart, president of Tri-City Hospital Foundation. “It will be an unforgettable evening supporting our award-winning Heart and Stroke Care program at Tri-City Medical Center.”

Tri-City Medical Center’s Heart and Stroke Care programs offer patients and loved ones a wide-range of resources including heart and stroke education classes, 24-hour support by certified nurses and doctors, stroke-reversing treatments and clot retrieval procedures, cardiac rehabilitation and wellness classes and more.
“Our Heart and Stroke Care program has saved countless lives of our community members,” said Rita Geldert, Foundation Board Chair. “The funds raised at Diamond Ball will help provide the equipment and resources our award-winng team needs. “
