The Purple Ball
The annual Purple Ball put on by the Lupus Foundation of America, Heartland Chapter was held on Saturday, March 21st. Health Care Family Credit Union had a presence at the event, sponsoring the cocktail reception.
Lupus is a condition that is unknown to a large percentage of the US population. The symptoms can cause sufferers to go misdiagnosed for years on end. However, with the help of fundraising events like The Purple Ball and organizations like The Lupus Foundation of America more and more research is being conducted.
Health Care Family Credit Union is happy to have been a sponsor of this event for several years now. While the event does serve as a fundraising function for the foundation, it also recognizes individuals who have been working toward providing treatment solutions for lupus patients.
"Its a good day for Health Care Family Credit Union when we can support health care providers receive the recognition they deserve for their efforts," Terry Summers, CEO.
