Hangar B Ball
Each fall the Heart Division of the Spartanburg Regional Foundation puts on the Hangar B Ball. This event features a band that will get you on your feet and have you dancing all night long, as well as a savory barbecue dinner, set in an airplane hangar at the Spartanburg Downtown Airport.
Your $75 ticket includes the entertainment, dinner, drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and a t-shirt commemorating that year’s event. Discounted tickets are available starting in August. Past bands have included David Ball, Edwin McCain, Delbert McClinton, Chairman of the Board, Robert Earl Keen, Little River Band and Party on the Moon.
All proceeds from the Hangar B Ball benefit Spartanburg Regional Heart Services.
Festival of Trees
Every November the Hospice Division of the Spartanburg Regional Foundation holds the annual Festival of Trees Auction Gala. This event features live and silent auctions with BMW packages, professionally decorated Christmas items, trips, golf outings, stunning jewelry and much more to bid on. This holiday-themed event also has delicious hors d’oeuvres, festive libations and a lively band to entertain guests after the auctions close.
The Hospice Division of the Foundation raises funds by sponsoring special events, such as the Festival of Trees, to provide terminally ill patients and their families support through the Hospice Special Needs Fund. This fund gives additional benefits and services, not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance, to Hospice patients and their families, and enhances the overall Regional Hospice program.
Tickets for the Festival of Trees are $75.
