| April 3, 2017 | 0 Comments

More than 500 supporters of Scripps Mercy Hospital recently celebrated the 45th annual Mercy Ball at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina. The March event raised more than $465,000 for cancer care at Scripps Mercy Hospital, which has campuses in San Diego and Chula Vista.

The 45th Annual Mercy Ball exceeded all expectations thanks to the generosity of donors and sponsors. The event was marked by touching testimonials from cancer survivors, Kim Peck, MD, Scripps Mercy Hospital; and Bill Bacon, chairman of the Scripps Mercy Foundation Board; and from Derek Roberts, a caregiver. Highlights included a three-song performance by 17-year-old Calysta “Caly” Bevier, a cancer survivor and 2016 “America’s Got Talent” semifinalist.
Guests feasted on fine cuisine, enjoyed live musical entertainment and participated in a high-energy live auction.

Scripps Mercy Hospital has a deep-rooted heritage of providing high-quality patient care for the communities of central and south San Diego County. It was founded in 1890 by Mother Mary Michael Cummings and the Sisters of Mercy.
