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 Henry Ford Allegiance Health, the Pink Ball has become our largest fundraising event of the year.

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

Lights of Love

Every December, this inspiring celebration honors individuals—both living and deceased—who have touched our lives in meaningful ways.

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.

“Lights of Love is a tremendous way to honor both your loved ones and the caring people at Henry Ford Allegiance Health who have helped them when they needed it most. The Lights of Love is a bright spot in the Holiday season, shining light on the care and compassion provided by our Health System!”

Dave Craft, President, Henry Ford Allegiance Health Board Member

The 2016 Lights of Love ceremony is on Wednesday, December 7, at 6 p.m.
