LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Hundreds turned out to hear Marie Osmond speak in Little Rock on Wednesday at the Baptist Health Foundation's 25th annual Bolo Bash luncheon.

The 54-year-old entertainer shared laughs and tears with the crowd, and praised everyone there for supporting the community.

"That's the one thing about Little Rock I've loved over the years - it's very community oriented, so it's wonderful to see everyone get together today benefitting neo-natal patients," said Osmond.

The luncheon raised money for the neo-natal intensive care unit's expansion at the Baptist Little Rock location.

Right now there are 33 rooms, but the unit averages 41 babies each day.
