The third annual Charm Ball, hosted by Chase Brexton Health Care, is set for September 23rd, at the historic B&O Railroad Museum (901 West Pratt Street, Baltimore). The evening will include dinner, dancing, casino games, and drinks.
The event raises funds to support Chase Brexton’s Hope Lives Here fund, a partnership program among Chase Brexton Health Care, local businesses, and people in the community. The Hope Lives Here program helps Chase Brexton bring quality health care and hope to people in need right where they live.
“Hope Lives Here allows individuals, families, small businesses, and corporate partners to have a direct impact right in their own communities,” said Chase Brexton’s Becky Frank. “Hope Lives Here members share a common belief in Chase Brexton’s mission: that everyone in our communities deserves high quality health care.”
This year, in addition to the main ball, attendees will have the option to attend the Charm Ball After Party, from 9 to 11 pm, which will include dancing, an open bar, casino games (including blackjack, poker, and roulette), as well as a sumptuous dessert bar.
Tickets for the full Charm Ball experience, that includes the After Party, are $250. Tickets for the After Party alone are $50. Tickets are available at Charmball.com.
This year’s Dr. Ronald Taylor Award for Contributions to Patient Care, will be presented to Chase Brexton Health Care employees Deborah Dunn (trans health coordinator) and Melinda Sickle (senior pharmacy technician).
Deb Dunn, a Chase Brexton employee since 2008, “has been a tireless advocate for the trans community, helping to shape the high quality of care that the clinic provides. She consults with patients across all of Chase Brexton’s centers, and educates providers on how to care for over 2,200 patients that receive services through the clinic,” Chase Brexton said in a statement.
Melinda Sickle has been a leader at Chase Brexton’s Mount Vernon Center pharmacy for over 15 years. “Her effective, no-nonsense style makes her a trusted patient advocated and staff mentor,” Chase Brexton said. “She focuses her efforts on helping patients get the critical medications they need, utilizes her extraordinary ability to achieve successful outcomes by effectively navigating difficult situations, and is an example to her colleagues of compassionate service.”
Chase Brexton Health Care thanks the Charm Ball’s sponsors: Allied Universal Security Services, McKesson, Priority Partners, and Quest Diagnostics.
