Inspiring Events

Cherry Health Foundation hosts two immersive storytelling fundraising events each year. These gatherings honor the patients working for wellness alongside their Cherry Health care teams.


Cherry Health Celebration

Cherry Health Celebration gathers on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 with a vision beyond the horizon. This annual fundraising event, hosted by Cherry Health Foundation, will host guests in-person in 2021, respecting the achievements of effective vaccinations.

The event will include a reception, entertainment, plated dinner, and engaging program. The sparkling reception with entertainment will begin at 5:30 pm with dinner and program following from 6:30 to 8 pm.

Hosted at GLC Live at 20 Monroe in downtown Grand Rapids, the venue offers neo-classic art deco design with high ceilings and delicious dining options. Valet parking will be available.

Prescription: Strength
Our fourth annual, second virtual Prescription: Strength engaged leaders and friends in a virtual happy hour to honor the resilience, tenacity and power of mothers. On Thursday, May 6, guests learned of the powerful impact of the Cherry Health Maternal Infant Health Programs (MIHP) in reducing health disparities. Serving hundreds of families each year, MIHP works to support and educate women into a thriving community of healthy families. This engaging event experience was free to attend and virtual attendees and sponsors donated over $60,000 to support women and their families!



Special Thanks

We could not inspire our community without the leadership of our event co-chairs

Comprehensive Sponsorship

Supporters of Cherry Health Foundation’s mission to lead, advocate and invest in health equity through the services of Cherry Health often seek the opportunity to accelerate their connection. A Comprehensive Sponsorship package highlights donor partners’ profile as community health champions with the dual purpose of increasing access to patient services. Comprehensive sponsors offer their sponsorship across Cherry Health Foundation’s 2 signature events, plus gain access to exclusive opportunities to create meaningful experiences for employees and friends, such as connecting with Cherry Health leaders for informative small group sessions or pop-up events on-site (at the workplace or virtual) to hear stories from patients about the service their sponsorships make possible.
