Each year, our Franciscan Health hospitals and our healthcare affiliates in Northern Indiana & South Suburban Chicago hold a memorable Gala with two main objectives. The first is to bring together friends of the health system to celebrate the life-changing work being done in our communities. The second is to allow us to raise funds for our Mission programs, which touch the lives of so many children and families in need.

We are excited to announce that we are returning to the Windy City for our annual celebration this year, as the Franciscan Health Foundation Gala will be held at The Art Institute of Chicago on Saturday, November 3, 2018 to raise money for our brand new Nursing Excellence Fund. Franciscan Health is committed to the continued education and well-being of our nurses, because highly-skilled, compassionate nurses are able to provide better care for all who come to us.

Your generosity can help us grow this new fund. Please find an enclosed sponsorship opportunity packet, which outlines the various giving options. We invite you to embrace our Mission of providing comprehensive, quality healthcare to all who come to us and join us in this fundraising effort. Your gift will Make a Difference to our nurses and, most importantly, to the patients entrusted to their care.

We truly hope you will consider attending this year’s Gala. It brings us great joy to be able to work with partners like you, because together, we can make a lasting impact on our communities.
