A Tribute to Caring: A Fashionable Success

The 16th Annual A Tribute to Caring event was held at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center in downtown on Feb. 28. The event, which honors caregivers and care teams who give so much of themselves to provide superior care to patients and their families every day, proved to once again be a tremendous success and raised needed dollars for the Wheaton Franciscan Cancer Care – Reiman Center, St. Francis.

The night began with a fabulous silent auction, which was made possible by the generous support of businesses in the community, hospital departments and community donors. Beautiful baskets filled the room and many bids were cast by hopeful supporters. Our silent auction raised a record amount of dollars! A huge thank you goes out to all who played a role in making it such a success.

The evening progressed with plated dinner service and a tribute program. Master of Ceremonies Sally Severson provided fun and flair while eloquently honoring the cancer care staff who give selflessly to their patients each and every day. A video also was shown featuring one of the patients who is continuing to fight her battle with brain cancer.

The night concluded with fanfare and a fashion show presented by Faye’s and Pendleton. The show featured many staff members as models. Aerialists also wowed the crowd from high above.

A special thanks goes to our sponsors and donors to the event. It was truly a community effort. Over $60,000 was raised benefiting our cancer care programs, which is certainly reason to celebrate!
