Poinsettia Online Ball – Bid, Buy, Let Us Drive!

The Burgess Foundation’s annual Poinsettia Ball event has been a long-standing tradition in our rural community of Onawa, IA. Each year, hundreds of supporters come for an evening of food, fun, and philanthropy. However, due to the continuation of the pandemic, we chose to keep the Poinsettia Ball event online, December 6-11, 2021. All bidding closes at 8 p.m. on December 11. The event is still completely FREE!

Proceeds from this event will help purchase a newer ambulance for Burgess Health Center. The ambulance service responds to 911 calls, transfers patients to other facilities, and assists with stand-by’s for fire calls – covering a total of 700 square miles! The crew also has presence at community events such as fairs, football games and other special events. This new model will replace the older ambulance which has 131,000 miles.

Our hope is to provide packages for our supporters to bid on and still feel like they are doing their part to help Burgess Health Center continue to provide the best medical services.
