“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.

Plans for the 2021 Benefit Ball are underway.
