Description

Fifth Annual Power of Community Benefit

Wednesday, June 19, 2019

The Drake Hotel in Chicago



The Power of Community Benefit consists of a cocktail reception, silent auction, seated dinner, and paddle raise. Our guests include hospital physicians and leadership, healthcare and community partners, and corporate sponsors. Last year’s event drew more than 430 guests and raised $350,000. This year’s goals are bigger – up to 500 guests and a fundraising goal of $400,000.

As a safety-net hospital, Norwegian American Hospital serves low-income and vulnerable residents in our community, including those with Medicaid, Medicare, or no insurance at all. Our patients face significant chronic health issues, particularly around diabetes, heart disease, cancer, behavioral health disorders, and substance abuse. We provide exceptional, compassionate healthcare regardless of a patient’s ability to pay; race or ethnicity; economic status; or any other social barrier to care.

Proceeds from this year’s Benefit will help us address the social determinants of health in our community, the lifestyle factors outside the doctor’s office -- like access to healthy food, language proficiency, housing status, and access to transportation – that influence 60 – 80% of a person’s health. Addressing these issues will improve overall health and wellness for our community.


CHALLENGE GRANT 2019

An anonymous donor has pledged $250,000 as a CHALLENGE GRANT to increase participation in this year's Power of Community Benefit. The donor will match 1:1 all new or increased gifts or sponsorships. The challenge grant will fund the renovation of our Intensive Care Unit - from new beds and lighting to a more comfortable family waiting room. Please help us meet the challenge goal this year!
