SSM Health Foundation recently hosted its annual Rise Gala at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch. Attendees were encouraged to “rise” together on behalf of vulnerable neighbors across the metro area. The evening began with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while guests bid on silent auction items, followed by dinner amid the clouds and a live auction and fund-a-need pledge donation. The evening raised more than $500,000 to support programs that improve the health of those living in and seeking medical care from SSM Health. Co-chairing the event were Anne Ritter and Emery Skolfield.
“What could be more important than for us to come together for the health and well-being for the entire region?” says Emery Skolfield, SSM Health Foundation Board of Trustees member and Rise Gala co-chair. “I am continually impressed with how SSM Health reaches out to help the community!”
