Memorial Foundation’s Virtual MaskurFace Ball 2020 A Success
Over the last several years, Memorial Foundation has hosted Un!que Spirits & Sweets, a fall fundraiser benefiting The Harold & Dixie LePere Breast Health Center at Memorial. Of course, COVID-19 made hosting such an event impossible, so the Foundation ventured into new territory with a virtual fundraiser.
The MaskurFace Ball 2020 virtual event raised money for Memorial’s Women and Infants Center of Excellence. This event was special because the entire community could be involved in it. COVID-19 had already made masks part of our everyday attire, so Memorial Foundation wanted to host a fun virtual event that would allow participants to create fashionable, yet effective, masks all while raising funds for women and infants in our community
After a call for submissions, Memorial Foundation opened up voting from October 26-November 11. People voted for their favorite masks by donating $5 for each vote.
We are excited to announce the MaskurFace Ball 2020 raised $17,200 for Memorial’s Women and Infants Center of Excellence. Proceeds will be used to increase OB capacity, create a pregnancy assessment center, and expand our infant security system.
