Hermann VFW Auxiliary plans Sweetheart Ball benefit for Katherine Witthaus O’Neal
By staff writer
The Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW Post 4182, Hermann, is sponsoring a Sweetheart Ball to benefit Katherine Witthaus O’Neal on Saturday, Feb. 15, beginning at 5 p.m. at the Post Home on Highway 100 in Hermann.
Mrs. O’Neal suffered extensive burns and multiple fractures in a motor vehicle accident on December 10, 2013 in the Jefferson City area. She has been a patient at Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur and will be at Mercy Rehab Hospital beginning January 27, 2014 for an anticipated length of 4-5 weeks before discharge.
It is expected that she will continue to be wheelchair bound for several months thereafter.
Katherine is a third generation Auxiliary member, with eligibility through the service of her late grandfather, Harold Kruse.
The benefit planned at the Post Home will include Lasagna dinner and dessert, silent auctions, 50/50 and dancing. A donation of $10 per person is suggested.
Persons or businesses wishing to make a donation may contact Mary Meyer, Auxiliary president, at 486-3680 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
