2015 Magnolia Ball Raised $1.4 Million to Benefit the NCH Oncology Unit. A magnificent evening of Southern Charm unfolded at the beach estate of Sandra and Alan Gerry where nearly 300 guests experienced the 2015 Magnolia Ball on Saturday, April 11. This signature event started with a cocktail reception overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, followed by dinner and dancing. Chairs Simone and Scott Lugert announced the event raised $1.4 million.
Proceeds from the 2015 Magnolia Ball will make possible special improvements to the William and Susan Dalton Oncology Unit at the NCH Downtown Hospital. Patients undergoing cancer treatment--who often spend 30 to 60 days on the unit--will benefit from a more holistic approach to care promoting a comfortable, calming environment that encourages healing.
Dr. Koop was honored at the Magnolia Ball this year, a donor gave money to NCH in his name , for "excellence".
