Mercy White Christmas Charity Ball

Mercy White Christmas Charity Ball presented by the William Thomas and May Pittman Hennessy Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation Fort Smith would like to thank our 2016 Charity Ball sponsors and all who participated in this year's event!

THANK YOU for participating in Mercy's White Christmas Charity Ball.  Your generous support helped to celebrate another record-breaking night!  With over 900 community members and business leaders in attendance, over $465,000 was raised to expand healthcare in Fort Smith and the River Valley for those in need.  A portion of the proceeds will go to Catherine's Light - a new program that empowers expectant moms to better cope with the social, environmental and behavioral health challenges of childbirth.
