About the Red Rose Ball
Red Rose Ball Preparations are Underway
Preparations for the 35th Annual Red Rose Ball are underway. The event, hosted by the St. Vincent’s HealthCare Foundation, will be held at the Jacksonville Marriott at Southpoint on February 12th, 2016, as St. Vincent’s celebrates its 100th anniversary.
Each year, the Red Rose Ball raises money for various projects at St. Vincent’s HealthCare, a member of Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and non-profit healthcare system. Last year, the event raised almost $400,000.
“The Red Rose Ball is a wonderful event which helps us fulfill our Mission to provide compassionate care to all people in our community, no matter where they are in life,” said St. Vincent’s HealthCare Foundation President, Jane R. Lanier, CFRE. “Each year, our sponsors and patrons help us raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for programs that help make our community healthier for all.”
This year, all proceeds will benefit the St. Vincent’s Mobile Health Outreach Ministry, which provides free medical care to those who are struggling the most, including uninsured or under insured men, women and children throughout the area.
This year’s theme will focus on the 100th anniversary of St. Vincent’s, founded by the Daughters of Charity in 1916 to provide health services to the communities in North Florida. The event will feature a cocktail hour, dinner and dancing, as well as live and silent auctions. Cocktails begin at 7 p.m., followed by dinner at 8 p.m.
