J.D. Penner & Family

Glitz, Glamour, Gatsby…and Generosity!

Nov 04, 2019

On Saturday, November 2, 2019 Providence Healthcare Foundation hosted the 26th Annual Silver Ball, in celebration of our incredible patients, residents and clients. With nearly 900 guests in attendance, it was a remarkable evening filled with some really special moments.

The Fairmont Royal York’s Ballroom embodied Glitz, Glamour, Gatsby…and Generosity, and our guests were dressed to impress. It was a wonderful way to welcome in the new 20s. Each and every one of our guests truly embraced and celebrated the 2020s with style and generosity. This year’s Silver Ball raised an astounding $1 Million for the strong patients of Providence Healthcare!

The evening featured the touching story of J.D. Penner and his family. J.D. was a patient at Providence who overcame insurmountable challenges to regain and rediscover his strength after surviving a devastating car crash. Watch their story here.
