This year, while it was not possible to physically gather, Mount Nittany Health Foundation, in conjunction with the Charity Ball committee – co-chaired by Gina Woskob and Tracie Doucette – invited community members to join them in making a difference in the lives of area children through gifts to the Center.

Executive Director of the Children’s Advocacy Center, Meredith Thompson, shared, “On behalf of the children and families for which Mount Nittany Health Children's Advocacy Center provides services, thank you! Thank you to the sponsors, donors and Charity Ball committee for envisioning the Charity Ball in a way that, without gathering, supported the Center's vital work. Your donations will go right to work to care for and protect our smallest, most vulnerable community members.”

“This year was unique in many ways, but steadfast throughout has been the outpouring of support for Mount Nittany Health, including the tremendous response to this year's reimagined Charity Ball,” said Mount Nittany Health Foundation Executive Director, Simon Corby. “I cannot thank all of our sponsors, donors and the Charity Ball committee enough for their commitment to honoring the spirit of the Ball.”

“On behalf of Gina Woskob, my co-chair, and the entire Charity Ball committee, thank you to all who continued to support the Charity Ball,” shared Doucette. “While we couldn't gather in person, we were united in supporting an important community resource, Mount Nittany Health's Children's Advocacy Center. We look forward to next year and hope to celebrate together again soon.”

Please join us in thanking our lead sponsors for their generosity and commitment to Mount Nittany Health's Children's Advocacy Center helping us protect the most vulnerable in our community – our children.
