According to Mount Nittany Medical Center, this year’s charity ball, “Garden of Life,” was the most successful to date; it raised $179,000 for the center’s Healing Garden.
Five hundred and ninety-six guests were treated to a garden-themed cocktail reception, fine cuisine, an online auction, a raffle and music by Philadelphia-based dance band, Monte Carlo.
The Healing Garden, which is set to break ground this spring and will be a place to provide healing and stress relief for patients, families and physicians and staff, and will offer a quiet and beautiful space for the community.
