The resurrection of the Nurses' BallThe Nurses' Ball was founded in 1994 by Lucy Coe as a fundraiser for HIV and AIDS awareness and research. It was held at The Port Charles Hotel, and attended by most everyone in Port Charles. The event included acts by various PC citizens, including singing, acting and dancing. Lucy emceed the event, often with Katherine Bell, and Lucy became notorious for usually ending up in her underwear somehow during the show. The Nurses' Ball became more personal for many in 1996 when local teenager Robin Scorpio was diagnosed with HIV. The last Nurses' Ball was held in 2001, said to be because of the lack of funding. Now, nursing student Sabrina Santiago is determined to resurrect the Ball in memory of Robin, who is thought to have died in 2012. Sabrina and fellow nursing student Felix DuBois have tracked down Lucy and convinced her to help with the event. These three, along with Nurse Elizabeth Webber, Robin's husband Dr. Patrick Drake, Dr. Britt Westbourne, Dr. Steve Webber, and with funding from Tracy Quartermaine, are planning to bring the Ball back in 2013. What surprising acts will be seen at the Ball, the people of Port Charles might even be in for a real shocker if Robin shows up alive! And of course, how is Lucy going to end up in her underwear? Watch GH and find out!
Featured characterScott "Scotty" Baldwin (born Bentley) first came to Port Charles, New York in 1965 with his mother Meg and half-sister Brooke after their father Lloyd Bentley died. The following year, Meg married Lee Baldwin, and he adopted Scotty; Meg died in 1971. Scotty became a lawyer like his father Lee, and fell in love with Laura Webber, whom he married in 1979. The marriage ended in divorce, however, when Laura left him for Luke Spencer in 1981. After a brief marriage of convenience to Jason Morgan's biological mother Susan Moore, and brief relationships with Luke's sister Bobbie Spencer and Lucy Coe, Scotty married Dominique Stanton in 1992. Dominique and Scotty desperately wanted a child, but the dying Dominique couldn't carry one, so Lucy agreed to carry the baby for them, and delivered baby Serena in 1993. Scotty later dated Eve Lambert, but then got back together with Lucy, and the two married in 1999. Lucy legally adopted Serena, and they adopted a second daughter, Christina, together. That marriage fizzled, however, and Scotty started dating Laura again after her marriage to Luke also fizzled in 2001. Laura, however, then was confined to a mental institution when she became catatonic after believing she killed her father Rick Webber. Scotty, however, was the one who had actually killed Rick in an attempt to stop him from harming Laura. In 2008, Laura woke up and Scotty wanted to rekindle their relationship. When Laura left town to go to Paris for treatment, Scotty followed her. Now, both Laura and Scotty are back in Port Charles after rekindling their relationship after all these years and are engaged to get remarried. Luke, however, doesn't want Laura to marry Scotty, thinking he's bad news for her. Will Laura marry Scotty, or will Luke be able to stop them? Is Scotty genuine in his love for Laura, or is he using her? Watch GH and find out!
