In a year when we couldn't gather together in-person, we want to extend our sincere gratitude for your continued (and virtual) support at the 14th annual Celebration of Caring Gala. Because of your generosity, over $625,000 was raised for important programs and services at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent. 
Gala host, Peyton Manning, enjoyed a visit and some music entertainment with country music superstar, Brad Paisley, and highlighted our True Hero Award honoree. The True Hero Award is given each year at the Celebration of Caring Gala to a special patient. This year’s recipient was Reese Sollman, who has already become a beloved and favorite patient of the many care teams she works with at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital.
In addition to raising funds and honoring Reese, event sponsors and donors also celebrated frontline caregivers through Mission Alignment Opportunities. Below are just a few of the examples of how these heroes were honored through this special event:

• Over 1,900 meals were provided to frontline caregivers

• Baked goods were enjoyed and a coffee cart was a big hit

• Toys were provided to patients at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital

Thank you for helping us honor our heroes, both big and small.
