Helping to Save the Lives of Our Patients with Heart Disease

Heart disease is the No.1 cause of death in the U.S.

In the last 12 months, the lives of more than 200 of Methodist Hospitals patients were changed because the electrical impulses that allow their hearts to beat were irregular and placed them at risk. Pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, and other medical interventions were utilized to treat patients.

More than half of these patients were underinsured or uninsured.

Proceeds from this year’s Mardi Gras Masquerade Benefit, sponsored by the Methodist Hospitals Foundation, will support the Heart Rhythm Center (electrophysiology lab) and help secure equipment purchases and much more.

The Methodist Hospitals Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. As the philanthropic arm of Methodist Hospitals, its purpose is to raise charitable gifts to support the hospital’s mission of providing quality and compassionate health services to all those in need. Financial contributions to the Methodist Hospitals Foundation power every aspect of service that the hospital offers.

The Mardi Gras themed evening will include New Orleans Food Court with Café DuMonde Sweets Stations, silent auction, open bar, music, dancing and more.
• 6:00 p.m. Open Bar, Appetizers, Silent Auction Opens
• 6:30 p.m. New Orleans Food Court/Café DuMonde Sweet Stations
• 7:00 p.m. Presentation
• 7:20 p.m. Musical Entertainment, The Chicago 6 Band featuring 1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl Champions Dan Hampton, Otis Wilson, and Steve McMichael
• 9:30 p.m. Cash Bar Begins, Silent Auction Closes

Mardi Gras Masquerade Benefit will be held at 6 p.m., Saturday, February 16, 2019 at Innsbrook Country Club, 6701 Taft Street, Merrillville, IN.

For information or tickets, call Maria Diaz, Event and Development Coordinator, at 219-886-4468.
