About the Auxiliary Ball

The Carroll Hospital Auxiliary will host the 64th Auxiliary Ball at Martin’s Westminster on Saturday, November 4, 2023. We promise that the evening will be full of surprises and adventures with this year’s theme, Safari Night Ball: Escape into the Wild! The evening will include a formal dinner, open bar, silent auction, music and much more! We hope that you will come join the journey!

Proceeds from this event will support the Auxiliary’s current pledge to the new state-of-the-art Simulation Center at Carroll Hospital. The Simulation Center will not only enhance and advance our medical staff’s skills, but also help them be prepared for those “never going to happen” events when they do in fact happen when things don’t go as planned. The center will also be a community asset, giving Carroll Hospital the opportunity to further collaborate with our local colleges, first responders and local EMTs. The Simulation Center will open June 2023.

Our Safari Night Ball is made possible due to the generous contributions of our sponsors and vendors.
