Cherry Health Celebration 2017
On Wednesday, November 1, the Foundation will host its seventh Cherry Health Celebration. This annual tradition is a key fundraising event supporting Cherry Health’s mission to improve the health and wellness of the communities we serve.
We are delighted this year’s Celebration will honor our partnership with Legal Aid of Western Michigan and the legacy of Robert J. “Bob” Eleveld.
Cherry Health has partnered with Legal Aid to integrate attorney services into our multidisciplinary team. The first and only of its kind in Michigan, this innovative program addresses patients’ legal needs that adversely affect their health. In providing this service at Cherry Health, we are able to assist those who cannot afford counsel in matters such as unsafe or unsanitary living conditions, employment, loss of benefits or domestic violence.
Join us in celebration on Wednesday, November 1 at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, 1000 E Beltline Ave NE, Grand Rapids.
Event proceeds benefit the Cherry Health Foundation which supports Cherry Health services to 71,000 patients who make nearly 700,000 visits a year for comprehensive medical, dental, vision and counseling services regardless of income or insurance. Of our health center patients, for whom income data was obtained, 96% are impoverished or below minimum wage.Sponsor Attend
