The annual Medicine Ball is Saturday, Sept. 15, from 6:30 p.m. - midnight at the Hilton Minneapolis. All proceeds benefit the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute® at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.
Chaired by Trisha Blake and Linda Ketover, MD, the gala will honor the generosity of the Piper family while remembering the elegance and grace of the late Virginia Piper.
Because cancer touches each of us in some way, this event will celebrate the champions who fight cancer in every capacity. From patients and their loved ones, to care teams, researchers and philanthropists, we are all championing the same cause.
Guests will enjoy an evening of great food, music and dancing. Medicine Ball is an all-inclusive event with complimentary valet or self-parking and a hosted bar. There are no auctions or raffles.
Table sponsorships are currently available
starting at $7,500 and above, and individual tickets are now on sale. Please
