Service League raises $140,000 for Mercy Medical Center Safe Caring Initiative

At its annual membership banquet held Thursday in Canton, Mercy Service League presented the Mercy Development Foundation with proceeds from the 2017 Harvest Ball, which totaled $140,000. Last year’s Harvest Ball benefited Mercy Medical Center’s Safe Caring initiative—AvaSure TeleSitter, a video monitoring system for at-risk patients. Themed “Feast & Fantasy,” the 2017 Harvest Ball attracted approximately 400 guests.

President Tom Turner and Chairman Donald Peterson III accepted the check on behalf of the Mercy Development Foundation. At the annual meeting, members also celebrated a successful year of fundraising that included Wine, Women & Shoes; Souper Bowl; Treasures; and Hearts and Hands, in addition to the Harvest Ball.

Mercy Service League will hold its signature fundraising event, the 2018 Harvest Ball, on Saturday, October 2, at the Canton Memorial Civic Center. This year’s theme will be amore Amalfi, and as always, it will be an evening of excitement, elegance, and music—and the area’s only gala featuring no auction, no wallet and no program.
