HonorHealth Foundation’s Night of Gold celebrated its 50th annual gala Oct. 19 at the Arizona Biltmore. More than 500 guests attended the golden evening, which was chaired by Laura Williams, with Debbie Allford as vice chair.
In addition to a silent auction during the cocktail hour, a program and dinner, guests enjoyed dancing to live music from The JJ’s Band. News anchor Olivia Fierro, 3TV Good Morning Arizona, served as emcee.
Over its 50 years, Night of Gold has raised more than $9 million to benefit the community services of HonorHealth Desert Mission. Proceeds from the Oct. 19 event will continue to support Desert Mission’s health and human service programs.
Since 1927, Desert Mission staff and volunteers have provided tools and resources to help vulnerable individuals and families address their health and social needs. Programs include the Food Bank, Lincoln Learning Center and Adult Day Healthcare, which are located on the HonorHealth John C. Lincoln Medical Center campus. From helping feed families facing hardship to delivering senior enrichment and child development programs, Desert Mission invests in services that improve the health and well-being of those in the community.
