Stark County, Ohio: Mercy Service League held its 2011 Harvest Ball on Saturday, Oct. 15 in the Canton Memorial Civic Center’s McKinley Room. Albert T. Domingo, M.S., M.D., president of Mercy Medical Center’s medical staff, served as honorary physician chair, and Linda Ganser and Michelle Johnson served as Mercy Service League co-chairs.

“Harvest Ball celebrates the continuing mission of Mercy Medical Center and contributes to the hospital’s future by supporting the planned renovation and expansion of the emergency department,” Domingo said. “I am grateful to everyone for their support of this critical project that will benefit our patients, their families and our community for years to come.”
