The Marshall Women’s Guild is a group of community-minded individuals with a mission to inspire and empower women to fulfill their philanthropic potential by improving the quality of healthcare for women of all ages in our community.
Through this county-wide organization, members hope to harness the power of women to realize that mission and fill a long-time void in Marshall County. Members not only enhance their own awareness of health, but also that of family and friends while setting the example for future generations of Marshall County women. The Guild accepts membership nominations throughout the year and is responsible for the planning of the Foundation’s annual Winter Ball and Women’s Health Luncheon.
The Winter Ball is a premier fundraising gala focused on maintaining quality healthcare in Marshall County and celebrating those who make it possible. Held in January each year, it is the community’s only black tie benefit with an evening of dinner, dancing and high-end silent auction. It is also when the Marshall Medical Centers Healthcare Heroes are recognized. Through the Healthcare Hero award the Foundation seeks to salute excellence, raise awareness, enhance the quality of healthcare and, of course, recognize deserving individuals within the healthcare industry. Funds raised from the Winter Ball support the Patient Navigator Program at the Marshall Cancer Care Center.
The goal of the Women’s Health Luncheon is to create an annual forum to promote women’s health and support a higher level of care through education and awareness. It is a day for women planned by women to discover more about achieving optimal health.
The event is held in September and features a delicious lunch, time for fellowship, a robust healthcare panel and special keynote speaker. Funds raised from the Women’s Health Luncheon support Labor and Delivery services at Marshall Medical Centers.
