HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – Presented by Camp Bear Track, the first annual Steak Soiree fundraiser benefiting Baptist Health Medical Center-Heber Springs will be held Tuesday, August 22, at 6:30 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in Heber Springs. 

“This is the first event of its kind here in Heber Springs, and we’re delighted with the reception our community has shown,” said Ed Lacy, vice president and administrator for Baptist Health Medical Center-Heber Springs. “Our town always rallies around our hospital, and we’re truly grateful for their support.”
