DOWNERS GROVE – Community members enjoyed a night of eating, gaming and dancing to support Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital's cardiovascular and diagnostic rehabilitation services on Saturday at the Bolingbrook Golf Club.

“Festival 2013: Hollywood Nights” is the hospital's big fundraiser for the year.

The 2013 Good Samaritan of the Year Award was presented to Naperville residents Vince and Sandy Lovelle in recognition of their commitment to the health and well-being of the community through a spirit of generosity, volunteerism and leadership at Good Samaritan Hospital.

More than 340 people attended Saturday's event.
