Merrymakers to Host Annual Toast
November 9, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Merrymakers Association (merrymakers.org) will hold their Annual Toast event on November 9th, from 6-9 p.m. at the Omaha Design Center. The Toast will feature tributes, pokes and fun aimed at honoree Hal Daub, former US Congressman, former Omaha Mayor and current University of Nebraska Regent.
The Toast is the primary fundraiser for the Merrymakers Association. As Merrymakers marks its 31st year of providing professional music and entertainment to Nebraska and Iowa senior facilities, they are also celebrating the partnerships they enjoy with 140 senior care facilities.
Sandy Lemke, Merrymakers Executive Director, stated, “The Toast is a highlight of the fall social season and an opportunity to support culture for senior citizens. The evening is filled with friendship, laughter, great entertainment and some light-hearted jokes!”
The key highlight of the event is the “Adopt-a-Home Auction” where attendees offer up $2,500 or more to sponsor senior care facilities for an entire year of Merrymakers’ performances. Last year, the event raised over $200,000.
Mary Maxwell, Omaha’s First Lady of Comedy, will be the event emcee. U.S. Congressman Don Bacon, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert and former Governor Dave Heineman will be toasting Hal Daub during the program. Boys Town Executive Director Stephen Boes will offer the invocation.
Merrymakers Association’s Annual Toast is open to the public; tickets and sponsorship information is available at merrymakers.org or by calling (402) 697-0205. Individual tickets are $200. A young professional ticket, for those under the age of 40, is $75.
