On Saturday, February 19th, 2011, the Museum of Health Care at Kingston held a lighthearted gala that restored the STRENGTH AND VIGOR of all guests in attendence. Patent medicine-inspired cocktails BROUGHT THE BLOOM OF HEALTH TO THEIR CHEEKS AND DELIGHT TO THEIR HEARTS.  Activities, prizes, live music, historic hors d'oeuvres, and turn-of-the-century reenactors were GUARANTEED TO LIFT SPIRITS. We thank all guests for supporting the Museum, while immersing themselves in a veritable curative bath of medical history. Proceeds benefitted the educational and public programs of the Museum of Health Care. This event offered INSTANT AND TOTAL RELIEF!
