Grammy-Nominated Singer/Songwriter Coming to Springfield

June 9, 2016

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Cam will be performing in the Ozarks this fall as she helps Mercy raise money for everything from cancer services to pediatrics.

“I’m proud to help support an organization that’s doing so much good in their community,” Cam said.

Cam was the most-nominated female artist at the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards, and she received a 2016 Grammy nomination for her song, “Burning House.” That single alone has achieved more than 1 million downloads in the past year.

Cam will be the headlining act at the Mercy Health Foundation Colors of Hope Gala, which will draw its theme from the colors of the Mercy cross. The gala is set for Saturday, Nov. 5 at the University Plaza Convention Center in Springfield, Missouri. The black tie dinner and show will raise money for five Mercy departments, including cancer services, orthopedics, eye specialists, heart and Mercy Kids. Sponsorships are $500 and include two tickets. You can secure a sponsorship by calling (417) 820-6111.

“As Mercy in the Springfield Communities celebrates its 125 years of service, we felt this event would be a great way to mark the occasion,” said Jean Gruetzemacher, vice president of Mercy Health Foundation Springfield. “From the time the Sisters of Mercy came to Springfield to establish the city’s first hospital, Mercy has always partnered with the community to meet their needs. This event allows everyone to be a part of that. When you buy your ticket, you’ll be able to earmark the proceeds for the department of your choice.”
