Charity Bash Raises Funds for Cancer Care

December 1, 2022

As we celebrate the season of Thanksgiving, Mercy Health Foundation Lebanon is thanking all those who supported this year’s Charity Bash.

“We raised a record amount this year of more than $86,000,” said Karen Simpson-Neasby, executive director of Mercy Health Foundation Lebanon. “That money will go to support our local Mercy Curry Cancer Center, which ensures our friends and neighbors can get the very best cancer care right here at home.”

This year’s event focused on giving back to the community by working with local vendors and auctioning off Missouri-themed items. “There was such fun and fellowship in the room,” Simpson-Neasby said. “It was wonderful to be back together again after the pandemic and see so many friendly faces. We’re so grateful for all the generous donations.”

You don’t have to wait for the next event to support local patients and Mercy Health Foundation Lebanon. “All gifts are welcome and will be put to good use,” Simpson-Neasby said. “You can designate your gift for things like the cancer center, areas of greatest need or Catherine’s Closet, which is named for our foundress, Catherine McAuley. It supplies new moms and babies with essential care supplies, like diapers, car seats, clothing and blankets.”
