Blue Christmas to Raise Green for Adult Camp

by Joy Donovan on November 29, 2009


A charity event will be colored blue this December in hopes of raising some green for an adult cancer camp.

Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford will host its 24th annual charity fundraiser Friday at the Dallas Marriott Las Colinas. This year for the first time the event will be a holiday party, “Blue Christmas.” Proceeds from the party will benefit the Bluebonnet Retreat, a program operated by Texas Health HEB and the only adult cancer camp in north Texas.

More casual that its black-tie balls of the past, this year’s fundraiser will feature a more casual atmosphere. Food stations will be scattered throughout the room, and the band Crawfish will provide music for dancing.

Chairing the event are Lynda and Leighton Railsback, with Gloria and Don Siratt serving as honorary co-chairs.

Tickets are still available for this event designed to kick off the holiday party season. Individual tickets are $150 with table sponsorships starting at $2,500. Information for ticket purchase is available through Cathy R. Sheffield at 817-317-5252 or by visit
