Festival of Light - Thursday, December 4, 2014

For sixteen years the Foundation of Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital has sponsored our Festival of Light auction. Festival of Light is a holiday fundraising event with proceeds supporting projects within the hospital benefiting our patients and families. Since Festival of Light’s inaugural year our amazing sponsors and attendees have raised over $800,000. Festival of Light is the perfect way to begin the holiday season – a season of light, a season of hope and a season of giving. Please join us Thursday, December 4, 2014 at West 14th Restaurant for a fantastic evening with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails while bidding on four fully decorated artificial trees, holiday items, getaway packages, artwork, sports items and jewelry.

How Your Support will benefit the Patients and Families at Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital
