A Shining Success: Diamond Jubilee Gala

Franciscan SistersThe Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – St. Francis 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee event was a shining success. Eighteen Felician Sisters attended the sparkling event, along with more than 450 people at the historic Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee on Feb. 20.

Gala attendees enjoyed a delicious dinner and danced to pop-rock violinists the Cover Girls, Presley, Lewis, Perkins and Cash: A Night to Remember, and the Jenny Thiel Trio. The program also included a look back at the past 60 years in pop culture and the history of St. Francis hospital.

The Foundation for St. Francis and Franklin raised more than $250,000 through a silent auction, raffles, cancer funding appeal, and other donations. The money raised will go a long way to help fund community education programs, direct financial assistance to patients, and support medical innovations that ensure our patients have access to leading technology and cutting-edge care.
