Mercy Service League’s 2017 Harvest Ball to Benefit Mercy Safe Caring Initiative—AvaSure Telesitter

Posted on: June 26, 2017

Stark County, Ohio: Mercy Service League will hold its 2017 Harvest Ball on Saturday, October 21, at the Canton Memorial Civic Center. Ronald D. Crock, MD, president of the Mercy Medical Staff, and George T. Maier, Stark County Sheriff, will serve as honorary event co-chairs. Proceeds raised at this highly anticipated event will benefit the Mercy Safe Caring Initiative—AvaSure Telesitter, a proven system for enhancing patient care for those at risk for falls or self-harm. Kathleen Prasnal and Barbara Frustaci are Mercy Service League event chairs.

Themed Feast & Fantasy, this year’s Harvest Ball—an evening of excitement, elegance and music—will again be the area’s only gala featuring no auction, no wallet, and no program. Guests will enjoy an elaborate, five-course gourmet dining experience, complimentary cocktails, full-service bar, and delicious dessert confections as they dance the night away to the music of The Orchestra.

Plus, the drawing for the $10,000 Cash Raffle will be held. Only 250 tickets will be sold at $250 each for a one-in-250 chance to win the prize.

As part of Mercy’s long-standing mission to provide care for all who come to us, the hospital has established the Mercy Safe Caring Initiative to purchase the AvaSure Telesitter. This video-monitoring system increases Mercy’s capacity to offer continuous and cost-efficient observation for patients at increased risk for harm due to dementia, falls, elopement, drug and alcohol detoxification, behavioral health issues, and other conditions.

Dr. Crock and Sheriff Maier encourage members of the medical staff and the community to make reservations and join them on Saturday, October 21, for an exceptional evening to support a great cause. Cocktails will begin at 6 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m. Cocktail attire / black-tie optional. Dinner tickets begin at $175 each.
