The St. Luke's Miners Memorial Hospital annual Black Diamond event is set for Saturday, June 11 from 6 - 9 pm at the Harry Packer & Asa Packer Mansions and Kemmerer Park in historic Jim Thorpe.

This year's event will be a business-casual Garden Party featuring food from Jim Thorpe's finest restaurants, live music, the Eckley Players, Horse Drawn Carriage Rides, guided tours of the Asa Packer Mansion and Kemmerer Carriage House and favorite activities from past year's events including a jewelry keybox.

Proceeds from the 2011 Black Diamond Garden Party will help construct a third operating & recovery room at St. Luke's Miners Memorial Hospital. In addition to having the latest medical technology and state-of-the art facilities, more community members will be able to have their medical procedures performed close to home where they can be cared for by the dedicated and talented staff of St. Luke's Miners Memorial Hospital.
