Special Events

Pink Ball

The annual Pink Ball has been a popular event in our community for more than 75 years. Started by the W.A. Foote Auxiliary and now coordinated by the Volunteers of Allegiance Health, the Pink Ball has become our largest fundraising event of the year.

All proceeds go the Allegiance Health Foundation to be used toward important expansion and improvement projects within the health system. Funds from recent Pink Balls have benefited the Allegiance Heart and Vascular Center, the Gayle M. Jacob Cancer Center, Graduate Medical Education at Allegiance Health, and the Trauma program.

Lights of Love

“The annual Lights of Love event symbolizes the true spirit of the holiday—holding our families and friends in the bright light of the season and remembering those who hold a special place in our hearts.”

Pat Hillman, Lights of Love Co-Chair, Volunteers of Allegiance Health

Every December, this inspiring celebration honors individuals—both living and deceased—who have touched our lives in meaningful ways. Green and yellow lights decorating the tall evergreens at the hospital’s entrance each represent a family member, friend, caregiver, or community leader. The names of those being honored are listed on a scroll in the hospital lobby. 

Proceeds from Lights of Love, which is coordinated by the Volunteers of Allegiance Health, help the Allegiance Health Foundation support life-affirming services, including hospice care, cancer care and heart care.

 

If you are a smoker, it’s important for you to understand that smoking slows recovery and increases the risk of problems. Several weeks prior to surgery, talk with your health care provider if you need help quitting.
