Foundation to host Great Gatsby Gala

Area medical supporters may travel back in time with Margaret Mary Health Foundation leaders for its Great Gatsby Gala Saturday, Oct. 5, reports Kasi Christin, Margaret Mary Health communications specialist.

"Margaret Mary has a rich history of hosting vibrant hospital galas, and we are excited to resurrect this tradition," says foundation executive director Mary Dickey. "It is sure to be a roaring good time! The gala will benefit the Margaret Mary Health Foundation and helps to ensure that the hospital’s legacy of health care excellence continues for generations."

The gala committee has been working overtime to plan a wonderful evening. According to Dickey, “We are so excited to bring back the gala of years past. This Great Gatsby Gala will be a party like no other – complete with an amazing band, phenomenal food and over-the-top opulence! It’s going to be a terrific evening.”

Beginning at 6 p.m. at Walhill Farm, Batesville, the party includes one hour of complimentary cocktails in the speakeasy, delectable hors' d’oeuvres, dinner, dessert, a live auction and dancing complete with the big band music of Don Bill and the Marksberry Band. While 1920s dress is encouraged, it is certainly not required.

Tickets for the benefit are $100 per person and must be purchased by Monday, Sept. 23, by calling Dickey at 933-5141.

MMH’s tradition of quality health care began in 1932. Since that time, the hospital has continued to expand and enhance its services to meet the changing needs of its communities. Now, 80 years later, officials remain committed to improving the health and wellness of families in southeastern Indiana.

Dickey notes, "Dramatic changes in the health care industry are putting many not-for-profit hospitals at risk. Challenges include rising costs, shrinking reimbursements and an increase in the number of uninsured and underinsured patients. All of these factors limit the hospital’s ability to recruit top-notch providers, invest in life-saving technology and provide important wellness outreach services.

"To partially meet these increasing demands, the foundation was chartered to raise money to enhance hospital programs, services, technology and educational opportunities, and to engage the community as partners in health improvement. The foundation’s role is to receive, manage and disburse funds to meet current hospital needs as well as ensure long-term growth and viability."
