A red carpet gala event will be held on Saturday evening, March 16, 2013, to benefit the Foundation for Hospice. The Faces of Compassion Gala & Auction is the area’s only mask event. Over 100 ceramic masks, decorated and painted by eastern NC’s artists, crafters, and other creative talents, will be auctioned. These unique masks have been exhibited at the Council for the Arts in Jacksonville and are currently on display at the Art Exposure in Hampstead and will be there until the first week in March.

The gala will feature a concert performance by Ocracoke Island’s award winning Molasses Creek Band who have recorded 12 albums and been performed on National Public Radio’s Prairie Home Companion. Special guests for the evening will be Miss North Carolina USA and Miss North Carolina Teen USA. In addition, jazz saxophonist, Richard Lawton will entertain with smooth jazz. This red carpet event will offer up heavy h’ordeuvres and lots of fun as attendees compete in a silent and a “live” auction for the masks of their choice.

This fundraising event will be held at the Infant of Prague Parish Hall in Jacksonville and will begin at 6:30 pm on Saturday, March 16th. Tickets are $25 per person. Tickets can be purchased in Jacksonville, Kinston, Hampstead, and New Bern at the Continuum Home Care & Hospice office. Tickets will also be sold at the door; however, seating is limited. Call 888-814-8904 for more information. All proceeds from the Faces of Compassion Gala & Auction will go to the Foundation for Hospice, a nonprofit agency which provides financial assistance to terminally ill persons and offers grief support programs to their families including Camp Butterfly.
