“Give My Regards to Broadway” theme of 65th Annual Mount Nittany Medical Center Charity Ball

The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center is hosting its 65th Annual Charity Ball on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel. The Annual Charity Ball is one of the Medical Center’s signature fundraising events, contributing to causes ranging from program support to specialized equipment. The formal event will kick-off with a reception at 6:30 pm, followed by dinner and dancing to the contemporary band, Paris, from 8:00 pm to midnight. 

Co-chaired by Penn State Family Health, State College, physicians Michael Flanagan, MD and Kristen Grine, DO, this Broadway-themed event will feature a silent auction and gift box raffle, where guests will have the opportunity to choose a gift box for $50 with a chance to win a prize valued between $25 and $250. 

The cost to attend the Charity Ball is $375 per couple, with sponsorship opportunities still available. All proceeds from this event benefit the Penn State Hershey/Mount Nittany Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program. This program is part of Mount Nittany Health’s goal to become a regional academic teaching facility, preparing the next generation of family medicine physicians right here in State College; and a key initiative of its strategic plan to support its mission of making people healthier. This will result in greater access to primary care and preventive services in central Pennsylvania.
