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 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.

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. 

“On behalf of the Henry Ford Allegiance Health Foundation, thank you for your donation to Lights of Love. The generous gifts we received helped to raise over $30,800 for patients receiving care in the Henry Ford Allegiance Hospice Home.  The precious moments of love and connection that your gift will provide to hospice patients and their families are beyond measure.”

Chad Noble, President, Henry Ford Allegiance Health Foundation

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


Here’s a tip for including more healthy foods in your diet. As you put your groceries away, chop some fruits and vegetables. Keep them in snack size bags in the refrigerator so they will be ready to grab on the go.
