Mercy Service League presents $205,000 check to Mercy Medical Center for facility transformation project

At its annual membership banquet earlier in May, Mercy Service League presented Mercy Medical Center with proceeds from the 2015 Harvest Ball, which totaled $205,000. Last year’s ball benefitted Mercy’s facility transformation project to renovate the fifth floor orthopedic/observation unit.

“A large crowd of members came together to celebrate the ‘fruits of their labors’ after a busy year of activities,” said Elaine Campbell, director of Mercy Development Foundation. “Mercy Service League has been one of the hospital’s greatest donors in time, talent and treasure. We salute the work they do to continue the mission of Mercy Medical Center.”

“We deeply appreciate all that the Mercy Service League does to help us continue the hospital’s mission,” said Thomas E. Cecconi, president and CEO at Mercy Medical Center. “Each year, they diligently strive to help us take Mercy facilities and services to new heights, helping our patients, families and the greater community.”

The 2016 Harvest Ball, themed Black and White, will be held Saturday, October 15 at Canton Memorial Civic Center. All proceeds will benefit Mercy’s facility transformation project.
