Foundation Events

Mark your calendar for these upcoming events! Proceeds from each event support the patients and families served by Ministry Saint Michael’s Hospital and Ministry Medical Group.

Upcoming Events:

Did you know that one-half of all chronic mental illness begins by the age of 14?
Two-thirds of chronic mental illness has been developed by the age of 24?


Please join us for an evening of friendship and philanthropy, featuring hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and pre-dinner festivities starting at 6pm. Pre-dinner activities will include a Silent Auction, food stations paired with a wine wall, where guests can purchase wine to take home and enjoy following the event. The evening will include a fantastic dinner, engaging program and conclude with a live auction.


Together, we can change the statistics. Join us to help raise $100,000 to assist in alleviating the barrier of access for mental health services for our community’s high school students.

Black tie preferred.  Seating is limited to the first 200 guests.
