KishHealth System Foundation to Present Formal Affair

January 28, 2015

KishHealth System Foundation Formal AffairDeKALB, Ill. - KishHealth System Foundation will present A Formal Affair, Saturday, March 7, 2015, in the Duke Ellington Ballroom in the Holmes Student Center, at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. The gala evening begins with a cocktail reception at 5:30 pm followed by an elegant dinner, open bar, and dancing to live music provided by the Gold Coast Orchestra. Tickets are $125 per person and table sponsorships are also available. 

“The Formal Affair has provided support to KishHealth System Hospice, which benefits greatly since so many of its most important programs, including music therapy and bereavement services, are supported fully by donations,” said KishHealth Foundation Executive Director Marcy Rubic. “This year, our event will benefit Hospice, along with a new Advance Care Plan Community Initiative that will encourage community members to reflect on and plan for their medical wishes and end-of-life care well before the need arises. Only about seven percent of our inpatient population has these plans in place, and community education will be a great benefit to everyone.” The event also will provide needed support for subsidized care, new equipment, facility expansions and wellness education throughout KishHealth System.

Formal Affair corporate sponsors help lead the way with their support.  Platinum Sponsors are: Castle Bank; The Daily Chronicle; and OSF HealthCare; Gold sponsors are: Advocate Health Care; and Cadence Health now part of Northwestern Medicine; Silver sponsors are: American Digital Corporation; DEC, LLC dba Hauser-Ross Eye Institute; Lockton Companies, LLC; Medicus Capital, LLC; NB&T; and Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren s.c.
