Hospital fund-raiser tickets sold out

North Arundel Hospital is sold out of tickets for a benefit Saturday night that will raise $100,000 to $130,000 toward the cost of renovating of its endoscopy department.

The dinner, called "Extravaganza '93 -- A Cruise to the Orient," features a Chinese theme and entertainment.

"We've sold over 900 tickets to the event," said hospital spokesman Kevin Murnane. The tickets cost $175 each, and the hospital has a waiting list.

Most of the money associated with the event comes from corporate donations. The three biggest donors, all of which have links to the hospital, each gave $10,000, Mr. Murnane said. They are Virginia-based Henry H. Lewis Contractors, which will build the $13.3 million 318-car parking garage and seven-suite operating room addition; KPMG Peat Marwick, a national financial planning consulting firm that has worked with the hospital over the past decade; and Central Billing Services Inc. of Glen Burnie, which does some of the hospital's billing work.

Eleven companies donated $5,000 each, eight gave $3,250 and 10 gave $2,250, Mr. Murnane said.

The dinner, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Baltimore, begins with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 8 p.m.

Renovations that will double the size of the endoscopy department will begin this spring, Mr. Murnane said. The 329-bed hospital, on Hospital Drive in Glen Burnie, opened in 1965.

2 indoor walkers honored for mileage

At a recent ceremony at the Harundale Mall, Norma Call and Agnes Alcott, both of Glen Burnie, were recognized for having walked more than 3,000 miles since October 1989 as part of the North Anne Arundel Hospital's indoor-walking program.

The mall offers a climate controlled and traffic-free environment for walkers from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to noon on Sundays.

Registering to walk is free and open to the public.

Participants are asked to use the rear entrance on the west side of the mall.
