2020 Cherry Health Celebration 

On Thursday, November 19, Cherry Health Foundation will host Celebration, our annual fall fundraising dinner to honor the frontline heroes that keep our community moving forward. This virtual, live-streamed event will lift the voices of frontline workers. Sharing the essential equity offered by Cherry Health’s access to affordable health care, regardless of income or insurance, the stories shared will immerse you in the vital mission of caring for our neighbors. Join us in Celebration of the doctors, counselors, social workers, pharmacists, dentists and psychologists who work with restaurant cooks, housekeeping staff, home-health aides, grocery clerks and line workers to keep us all safe and healthy. Tickets are $100 and include a complimentary meal and a virtual event interactive kit. Sponsorships are encouraged with safer social hosting options available for your guests.

Engaging our Virtual Event

The live stream event is new to Cherry Health Foundation, but not a new concept. Think of this year’s Celebration as your favorite storytellers gathering for a live broadcast television special! You’ll share the moment with hundreds of other supporters of a movement, bringing health equity to over 70,000 patients across Michigan.

If you are ready to safely host a small group of friends or colleagues for a viewing party of Celebration, we have a package that’s ready for you. In the event of revised gathering restrictions, the included catering will be available for take-home participation. Self-viewing party is always an option in these levels of support.

1. Hosted Viewing Parties: Sponsors of the event have an opportunity to host a catered party to celebrate the mission. Invite a small group to your home or office to safely connect while viewing the livestream. Or, choose a sponsorship package that includes a suite space from our venue partner so your small group can kick back in a chic, safe, central location.

2. Hope at Home Viewing Kit: All the engagement in mission, plus your cozy couch. How often did you wish you could stay put during the busy event season and just get your dose of hope at home? With a self-hosted viewing kit, each ticket includes:

  • a donation supporting patient access to excellent, comprehensive care
  • a meal voucher from your choice of one of our restaurant partners
  • a link to the live stream event
  • Plus, your “Hope at Home viewing kit” arrives the week before Celebration, with all you’ll need to immerse yourself in this incredible moment.

A link for the event will be supplied to all guests.

Celebration is the largest annual fundraising event for Cherry Health Foundation. Year over year, generous donors have sponsored, hosted new donors, purchased tickets, and given above and beyond for this event! We need our friends to join with us in honoring the frontlines, and that means stepping in with your donations are the seed investment in patient access.

This virtual event will be your opportunity to experience the mission of Cherry Health Foundation, supporting access to health care for all, regardless of income or insurance. In a time when we need to come together, while staying safely distanced, this evening seizes a moment to celebrate how our frontline workers inspire us to care for each other.

2020 Prescription: Strength

On Wednesday, May 6, hundreds of Cherry Health Foundation supporters connected digitally to our annual spring fundraiser, Prescription: Strength.

Powered by our presenting sponsor, Priority Health, the event shared the work of our teams to serve our patients, many of them our frontline essential workers, in a dangerous time to be without. Through the support of sponsors, all donations through the event were matched!

Our community responded with incredible generosity. Over $90,000 was donated to offer patient access to care!

“As the presenting sponsor of Cherry Health Foundation’s Prescription: Strength, Priority Health is honored to work alongside teams and patients to serve the most vulnerable populations in Michigan. Cherry Health’s patients, many of whom are covered by Priority Health, are people who just need a little extra help to overcome the barriers to wellness. Priority Health has come alongside Cherry Health as a philanthropic leader to make sure everyone has access to excellent, equitable care.” – Joan Budden, President & CEO, Priority Health
