Party of the Year


Deaconess Foundation's Party of the Year is our premiere fundraising event.

Every fall Foundation supporters look forward to a one-of-a-kind event featuring delicious food, exciting entertainment, and many fun surprises. This year is different, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate the difference your gifts make to patients and healthcare providers everyday. For 2020, we brought the party to YOU by delivering Party Boxes to your home or business. These boxes created socially distant celebratory experiences for guests throughout
the month of September. 

why “here comes the sun” theme?

Throughout Deaconess Health System, when a COVID-19 patient is released to go home the song “Here Comes the Sun” is played over the intercom. Employees cheer, knowing that another patient is being reunited with their family. Through the support of donors, we keep Deaconess strong and able to serve patients in the Tri-State area. YOU bring the sun each time you generously give to Deaconess. This theme celebrates the difference you make in our patient’s and
employee’s lives.

Your support makes the mission possible.

Each year the Party of the Year funds support a different area of Deaconess Health System. From end of life hospice care to recovering cancer patients, your gifts make an impact. This year, Party proceeds
will equip Deaconess staff as they care for patients impacted by the pandemic, life altering emergencies, and daily illness. You make it possible for Deaconess employees to receive cutting edge training opportunities, state of the art medical equipment, and innovative patient care techniques to provide Deaconess patients with exceptional care every time.

Thank you to our many 2020 Party of the Year Supporters!
