Fundraising project announced for Mon Health Medical Center's Ball of the Year

Posted Date: 9/13/2018
The Mon Health Medical Center Auxiliary's 56th Ball of the Year will continue with the tradition of raising funds for patient care.

Proceeds from the 2018 fundraising event will go toward the purchase of a Plethysmograph machine and software for the hospital's respiratory/pulmonary care department.

A Plethysmograph conducts a pulmonary function test that measures a patient's lung volume and how well the lungs are working. This machine can help determine if patients who have pulmonary diseases are capable of tolerating surgery.

"The Ball of the Year has a strong reputation of successful fundraising for hospital projects in its 55 years of existence and this year is no different," said Jason Savage, chair of the Ball of the Year Committee. "The committee voted to raise money for a Plethysmograph because it will benefit a large number of patients."

The Ball of the Year is Saturday, Nov. 3 at the Morgantown Event Center at the Marriott Morgantown Waterfront Place. The theme of this year's ball if from the iconic movie  Breakfast at Tiffany's. Cocktail hour begins at 6 p.m. followed by dinner and dancing.
