The 56th annual Snow Ball Dinner Dance will be held in a little more than a week at Lewis & Clark Community College in Godfrey.  Last year's event raised over $45,000 to benefit cancer services at OSF St. Anthony’s Health Center.  Lee McRaven, OSF St. Anthony’s Foundation Development Specialist, says they are hoping for an even more successful event this year.

She tells The Big Z the black-tie optional event will begin with a complimentary cocktail hour from 6 - 7pm, followed by dinner and a cash bar.
