This year, Holly Ball is celebrating 50 years, and has announced the theme this year is "Seasons of Love".  This makes sense as they are celebrating 50 seasons of love and caring.

If you are unfamiliar with the Holly Ball fundraiser, the event raises funds benefiting the greatest patient needs for CentraCare Hospice and Cancer Care as well as the Central Minnesota Child Advocacy Center.

This year, the Holly Ball chair is Marie Sanderson, and she made this statement regarding the theme for 2024.

“Just as the seasons change, so do the stages of life, filledTi with moments of growth, challenges and renewal. Holly Ball seeks to honor and support individuals and families navigating life’s journeys. ‘Seasons of Love’ reflects CentraCare’s commitment to providing compassionate care during difficult times, advocating for vulnerable youth, and offering hope and strength to those battling cancer. This theme embodies the love and resilience that define the human spirit, making it a fitting tribute to our purpose.”

The date is December 7th. Holly Ball happens on the first Saturday of December.  Tickets will go on sale in October, but sponsorships are available now. If you or the company you are with would like more information on sponsorships, you can get all the information you need here.
