The 19th Annual Mercer Foundation for Health Benefit Dinner and Auction has been set for Thursday evening, Sept. 16 at the VFW Hall in Aledo. Mercer Foundation for Health sponsors the fundraiser for Mercer County Hospital each year. Social hour starts at 5:30 p.m. with the dinner at 6:30 p.m.. Both a silent and a live auction will be held with many exciting bidding opportunities available.  

Susan Sutton, Benefit Dinner Chairman, commented, "The Benefit Dinner is a fun, social event where we can support our local hospital. Each year, members and organizations of our community are very generous with table sponsorships, donating auction items, and purchasing tickets. Watch for auction items to be displayed at THE National Bank."

Vicki Palmer, Mercer Foundation for Health President, said, “The theme for this year’s event is 'Calling All Pardners to Support Your Local Hospital.' Dress attire is casual and we will decorate in a country western style. Funds generated from this event will be used to purchase equipment for Mercer County Hospital. We hope you can join us for a fun evening.”
