At St. Ann Center, we have to keep our eye on the ball to meet the growing needs of our children, elderly, adults with disabilities and their caregivers. The annual Stu’s Flooring Benefit Golf Outing helps us do just that with the support of area businesses and golfers with a love for the game and their community.
The Dream Together Gala is St. Ann Center’s largest fundraiser to support the care of people of all ages and abilities who spend their day together at both of our campuses.
The event hosted at Discovery World features silent and live auctions, a fabulous dinner catered by The Bartolotta Restaurants, raffles, prizes and most importantly – stories of how you are making a difference in the lives of so many children and adults.
This year, you can make a bigger difference than ever! The 2018 Dream Together Gala will benefit people of all ages and abilities who are waiting to enroll in the brand-new units now being completed at St. Ann Center’s Bucyrus Campus.
