The 2022 Emerald Ball to benefit Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast is set for Saturday, April 30, at 6 p.m. at the Hilton Sandestin. The inaugural event in 2019 raised an amazing $217,631, thanks to the generosity of our community. This year’s proceeds are earmarked for a state-of-the-art CT scanner for the hospital’s pediatric and adult patients. The scanner is considered one of the industry’s fastest and most versatile scanning modes, allowing an entire adult chest, abdomen and pelvis study to be conducted in approximately one second so patients don’t need to hold their breath. This technology will be ideal for patients who have difficulty remaining very still during a scan.
“We are all looking forward to giving our community an exciting evening of live music, dancing and great food at the Emerald Ball,” said Carol Carlan, president of Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation.
Guests are encouraged to wear shades of emerald for this elegant event. The evening will begin with a cocktail hour at 6 p.m. followed by dinner and dancing. Entertainment will include live music by Tribute Show Band of Mobile, Ala. Plans also include a bourbon and wine pull and a photo booth for guests to capture memories of the occasion.
A highlight of the evening will be the opportunity to enter a drawing for a $5,000 shopping spree at McCaskill & Company. Tickets for this exclusive jewelry drawing will be available to purchase for $100 each and will be limited to 150 entries. Individual tickets for the Emerald Ball are available to purchase for $150 and include reserved seating, dinner and two drink tickets. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast was established in 2003 as a 58-bed hospital to meet community needs. Today, the hospital has grown to offer 76 beds and has added services over the years to meet even more needs. Services that have been added include The Family Birth Place, a Cancer Center and the state-of-the-art Judy and Steve Turner Heart & Vascular Center. One of the latest additions is a new Women’s Diagnostic Center that opened in 2021 near the hospital. Designed for the comfort and convenience of women, the new center features a spa-like environment and offers a wide variety of imaging services, including 3-D mammography, breast ultrasound, and bone density screening using the DEXA scan. The Magseed procedure to mark small breast tumors for surgical removal also is available at this location.
Licensed Breast Navigators help guide and support patients and provide resources for breast care. Pelvic floor rehabilitation services also are located in the new center. In addition, pediatric services also are located at the new building on Mack Bayou Loop.
