Mercy Service League’s 2019 Harvest Ball "French connection" fundraiser set for October 19

Mercy Service League will hold its signature fundraising event, the Harvest Ball, on Saturday, October 19, at the Alex D. Krassas Center. With a French connection theme, the event promises to be an evening of excitement, elegance, music and dancing as the area’s only gala featuring no auction, no wallet and no program.

Guests will be treated to an elaborate five-course gourmet dining experience, complimentary cocktails, full-service bar and dessert confections, while raising funds for Mercy Medical Center.
