A hospital visit should be comfortable and convenient – especially if you’re a child. Mercy is turning to the community next spring to ensure young patients and their families continue to get great care for generations to come.
On Saturday, April 14, 2018, Mercy Health Foundation – Lebanon will host the inaugural Mercy Kids Charity Bash at the Cowan Civic Center at 500 E. Elm Street. This fun-filled evening will include dinner, live entertainment and much more to benefit the Foundation’s $1.5 million Mercy Kids campaign.
“It’s going to be a night to remember,” said Brennon Willard, chairman of the Mercy Health Foundation. “We can always count on the support of our community, and this charity bash will definitely leave a lasting impression on the care Mercy provides.”
Headlining the evening will be Country music legend Tracy Lawrence, who has enjoyed 22 songs on the Billboard top ten charts with 18 No. 1 singles, selling more than 13 million albums. You may recall his songs “Paint Me a Birmingham,” “Time Marches On,” “Alibis,” and “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.”
