St. Joseph Mercy Livingston charity ball to help grow surgical services in community

St. Joseph Mercy Livingston will host more than 400 business leaders and community members at its annual charity ball being held at Crystal Gardens Banquet Center in Howell on Saturday, April 21, 2018. This year’s ball, Sock Hop Soirée, will involve a fun and festive 1950’s theme. Funds raised will benefit the enhancement of surgical services at St. Joe’s Livingston and the St. Joseph Mercy Brighton Health Center, which includes construction of new operating rooms, the purchase of advanced technology, and the expansion of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures being offered.

The surgical service upgrades are part of St. Joe’s Livingston and Brighton’s Transformation Project, a $41.1 million investment to revolutionize healthcare and better serve patients and families close to home, in Livingston County. Together, St. Joe’s Livingston and Brighton perform over 4,600 surgical procedures each year, many of which are being performed on a recently acquired da Vinci®Si robotic surgery system. That number is expected to increase to 5,500 over the next several years.

The ball begins at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner, music and dancing, live entertainment and more. Guests are encouraged to wear their most festive fifties fashion and should be prepared to twist the night away while they enjoy interactive games and special guest appearances.

This year’s $15,000 Presenting Sponsor is Caretel Inns of Brighton. Platinum Sponsors (donating $10,000) are Emergency Physicians Medical Group, PC and WellBridge of Brighton/WellBridge of Pinckney; Gold Sponsors (donating $7,500) include Anesthesia Associates of Ann Arbor, PLLC; Huron Valley Radiology, PC; and IHA.

Sponsorships and tickets to the event are still available. For more information, contact the St. Joe’s Livingston’s Office of Development at (517) 545-5151 or visit
