Chrysanthemum Ball a.k.a. The "Mum" Ball
Each year, 400 patrons and guests launch the Treasure Coast’s social season by dancing the night away at this glittering gala. The Chrysanthemum Ball has earned a reputation for providing high-quality entertainment, fine cuisine and an energetic atmosphere in truly extraordinary surroundings.
Thank you for supporting the
2014 Chrysanthemum Ball.
Save The Date - November 14, 2015
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PAST SUPPORT!
As healthcare becomes increasing more complex, an investment to broaden the knowlede of our professional nursing staff is vital. The Institute of Medicine Best Practices states that healthcare systems should achieve an 80% BSN Rate by the year 2020, currently MHS is below 50%. In 2014, the Chrysanthemum Ball supported a system-wide initiative to reimburse education expenses for nursing staff who have an interest in pursuing a Baccalaureate of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN).
Thanks to the Mum Ball planning committee, the 400 patrons who supported the event and the Martin Health Foundation, the 20th annual Chrysanthemum Ball held on November 8 was a tremendous success raising $800,000 to establish a nursing education fund! As a result, 56 nurses were recently awarded a full tuition scholarship by the "Mum Ball RN to BSN" scholarship committee! We wish them the best as they embark on their journey to advance their educational experience.
This past year the Mum Ball celebrated 20 years of buying life-saving care for the community. The gala has raised more than $12 million for critical hospital projects and cutting-edge technologies, including the development of an inpatient Radiation Therapy suite, the da Vinci Robotic Surgery System, a new interventional Radiology Suite, bedside computers, two complete cardiac catheterization labs, a 64-slice CT scanner, and a PET/CT scanner. A special thanks to all of our 2014 sponsors who helped raise $800,000! We look forward to welcoming you back for another year!
