Mercy Service League will hold a spring kick-off fundraising event, “Spring Fling”, on Monday, May 11 at Jerzees Sports Grille (5260 Dressler Rd., Belden Village). From 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the community is invited to join Mercy Service League as it raises money for the first phase of the Mercy Facility Transformation–an initiative to provide more private rooms throughout the hospital. This project will renovate part of the hospital’s fifth floor into a state-of-the art Orthopedic and Observation unit. The event will include free admission, local “celebrity” bartenders, delicious All-American cuisine (wings, pizza, burgers, wraps and more), “celebrity” drinks (all of which are optional purchases), a live broadcast by News-Talk 1480 WHBC’s Kenny Roda and the opportunity to purchase tickets for the $10,000 Cash Raffle; the winner of which will be announced on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at the Service League’s Harvest Ball. All proceeds (including celebrity bartender tips, a portion of food and drink sales and $10,000 Cash Raffle ticket sales) will go toward the Mercy Facility Transformation.
The capstone event of Mercy Service League’s fundraising is the Harvest Ball, which will be held on Saturday, October 24 at the Canton Memorial Civic Center. This year’s theme is Ignite the Night, and once again the popular dinner and dancing event promises to be a relaxing evening of fun and fellowship, with the Canton Memorial Civic Center transformed into an enchanting setting. The winner of the $10,000 Cash Raffle prize will be announced that evening. All proceeds of the 2015 Harvest Ball will benefit the first phase of the Mercy Facility Transformation.
