Poinsettia “Un-Ball” Ball

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 unfortunate happenings with COVID-19, we decided to turn our annual Poinsettia Ball event from in-person and live to virtual, December 7-12, 2020. All bidding closes at 8 p.m. on December 12. And bonus -it’s completely FREE – no tickets required!

Our goal for this year is $100,000! Proceeds from this event will help purchase a new Omnicell® to replace the current unit in the Emergency Department and replace the current unit’s operating system in the Surgery Department. The Omnicell® is an automated medication dispensing system that ensures patient safety by enabling healthcare providers to reduce medication errors. By using this system, it greatly improves staff productivity and reduces medication errors. Our current Omnicell® is outdated.

We hope to have your support this year, wherever you are!
