Posted February 22, 2010

Save the date April 1, no fooling… come have a ball!

The Idaho State University Family Medicine Residency Program will host the "Medicine Ball" in Holt Arena, a casual evening of delicious food, no-host bars and live music.

The event will feature four bands and 30 restaurants.  Participants can enjoy the sounds of "Slapdash,"  "Band on Demand," "Elvis Has Left the Building" and "Somewhere in the Middle."

Dining options include fine dining at "Canopy's Restaurant" by Chartwells, 6 p.m., $100 per person; casual dining at "Tavern on the Turf," 6:30 p.m., $35 per person; or "Cookie's Place" for dessert and dancing, 8 p.m., $10. The masters of ceremony are Mike Sanders, Naeem Rahim and Fahim Rahim (the "Drs. Rahim"), and Howard Burnett.

"ISU's Family Medical Residency Program brings young doctors and clinical pharmacists to the state of Idaho and serves many individuals in the area," said Linda Hatzenbuehler, ISU Associate Vice President of Health Education, and chair for this event. "All proceeds from this fundraiser will continue the efforts for excellence in health care. We are excited to extend an invitation to the community to further our goal."
