The center?s next fundraiser, ?Gala Christmas Dinner,? will be at 6 p.m. Dec. 4 at the Milk and Honey Bed and Breakfast. The meal includes prime rib, vegetables and all the trimmings, plus a dessert bar of cheese cakes and the dress is black tie. After dinner, entertainment will be provided by The Hieberts Dulcimers Ect. featuring Eddie and Robert Hiebert, a husband and wife duo from Abilene, performing musical selections on the dulcimer, guitar, and autoharp, along with vocal harmonies. The cost is $100 per person with all proceeds helping the center. Only 30 tickets will be sold for the gala and they are going fast. For those unable to attend in December, another similar event is planned in February.
