2013 Monarch Ball
More than 850 invited guests helped raise $975,000 at the 19th annual Monarch Ball celebrating Presence Health on March 2 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Ryan Baker of CBS2 and singing group Sister Sledge headlined the gala. Proceeds were directed to the highest priorities of Presence Health.
Presence CEO Sandra Bruce addressed the audience, including Cook County Board Commissioner Michael Cabonargi and Director of the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services Julie Hamos.
