The 24th annual Patrons Ball was held on Saturday, May 5, 2018

Over 150 people were in attendance for the Cinco de Mayo themed evening. Mrs. Melanie DeSutter and a team of volunteers brought the celebration to life through the décor, food and music.

The Patrons Ball supports the Richard S. Kowalski Endowment for Staff Education and Development, which honors a retired CEO (34 years). During his tenure at OSF HealthCare St. Mary Medical Center, Mr. Kowalski showed his Mission Partners the importance of lifetime learning. He led by example, inspired and encouraged his team to live the Mission.

Over the last five years this fund has provided over $65,000 in educational and scholarship assistance. On Thursday, May 10, 2018 the 18 scholarship recipients for the 2018-19 school year were recognized. Each of the recipients represent what is special about our Mission Partners. They each represent our team’s passion and desire to serve our patients and this community. Proceeds from the annual Patrons Ball supports our team as they continue to enhance and develop their skills to meet changing health care needs.
