“The Hospital Ball” or Benefit Ball made its debut in 1980 as an opportunity to raise funds for the Missouri Delta Foundation. The biennial event has become an important social gathering in the community and is considered Sikeston’s signature black tie event.
Proceeds from each Ball are earmarked for a specific need, whether it be facility improvements, expansion projects, clinical equipment upgrades or advanced technology.
The 2019 Benefit Ball will be held New Year’s Eve, December 31st, 2019 at the Sikeston Armory.
The Patron Party will be Saturday, October 5th, 2019.
Proceeds for the 2019 Benefit Ball will aid in the construction of our new Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit. This much needed facility will fill a great need for the youth in the committees struggling with mental health disorders.
