The 2015 Vol. Ball

Categories: New Releases,Stories,Volunteers

On Friday, April 17th Mercy Health Center held its first annual Volunteer Ball at the State Botanical Gardens. The event recognized and celebrated the more than 700 outstanding volunteers who make Mercy possible. The evening included a formal awards program, pictures, food, and of course – dancing.

In addition to their faithful service, volunteers came together to raise a total of $7,838 in preparation for the event. It costs approximately $55 to provide a free patient visit at Mercy. With the money raised at this event, 143 patients will receive care!
