Guam - If you are going to have a ball why not do it for a good cause.

The Guam Medical Association is getting ready for their annual charity ball.

GMA president Doctor Thomas Sheih said, "This year is special because 100% of the net proceeds is going directly to the Guam Medical Association medical mission."

Having returned from a successful first wave of a medical mission to the Philippines GMA is preparing for two more medical missions. The funds from the charity ball will go toward purchasing the medical supplies needed for the missions which dates will be announced at the ball. Those who attend will be in for a special treat.

"Babba B will be performing exclusive only one show at the ball and he has wrote and original song called The Dream and that is dedicated to the victims of the Philippines," he said.

Also in store is a silent auction, raffles prizes and great food. The only catch is as of 1 pm today only one table remains available so call Pram Sullivan at 483-6600 to reserve your seat. The ball is set for 6 pm on December 19 at the Hyatt Regency.
