The hard work and dedication of more than 200 volunteers, working under the leadership of Co-chairs Mrs. Annette Jones and Mrs. Nichole Pezold, will bring the 24th Annual Magnolia Ball to fruition on Saturday, April 26, 2014. Mrs. Jackie Carden will serve as honorary chair of the ball.
Serving with Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Pezold on the 2014 Magnolia Ball Executive Committee are Mr. Jim Gill as Sponsorship Vice-Chair, Auction Vice-Chairs Leanna Schulenburg and Erica Tisinger, and Decorations Vice-Chairs Susan Martin and Tina Reid. The rich history and timeless tradition of the “Kentucky Derby” will be celebrated at the 2014 Magnolia Ball on the grounds of the Richards’ family estate in Carrollton.
Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit a 30-bed expansion of the child and adolescent unit at Willowbrooke at Tanner. The facility’s current 12-bed unit often operates at capacity, and it is the only inpatient pediatric behavioral health and substance abuse program in 19 counties authorized and willing to accept pediatric patients covered by traditional Medicaid.
This expansion would not be possible without the support and leadership of many in our community. More than 300 local individuals and companies are supporting the ball through sponsorships, cash donations, donated auction items and in-kind services.
Tanner Medical Foundation is grateful to the 2014 Honorary Chair, Executive Committee and Sponsors for their support of the 2014 Magnolia Ball.
Members of the public wishing to make a donation in support of the expansion of the child and adolescent unit at Willowbrooke at Tanner may contact Tanner Medical Foundation at 770.812.GIFT (770-812-4438).
