Mark your calendar for Saturday evening, October 29, to attend one of the Valley’s most exciting black-tie events, the Gold Ball presented by HonorHealth Foundation, formerly John C. Lincoln Health Foundation.

The Gold Ball has raised more than $8.3 million to benefit the community services and programs of HonorHealth Desert Mission. This year, proceeds from the Gold Ball will continue to support the many health and human service programs offered through Desert Mission, which include the Food Bank, Lincoln Learning Center and Adult Day Enrichment Center.

The 47th annual Gold Ball will be held at The Phoenician Resort Grand Ballroom. Barbara Walchli and Larry Seay are serving as honorary co-chairmen. Mr. Seay recently retired as Executive Vice President and CFO of Meritage Homes. He previously served on the John C. Lincoln Health Foundation Board of Directors for eight years, including four years as chairman. He currently serves on the HonorHealth Foundation Board of Trustees and the HonorHealth Board of Directors.

The Gold Ball will feature a live auction, dinner, dancing, and silent auction. Republic Services is the presenting sponsor.
