Healthy For Shore: Meridian Health 18th Annual Sweetheart Ball
Cancer Care in Monmouth and Ocean Counties gets a big boost with the success of Meridian Health Foundation’s 18th Annual Sweetheart Ball. The event which raised more than $200,000 was held on Saturday, February 21, 2015 at Ocean Place Resort & Spa in Long Branch. The ball supports cancer research at Meridian Cancer Care. The funds also provide residents of Monmouth and Ocean counties with access to advanced cancer treatment options. Meridian Health is the system partner of the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the state’s only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Sweetheart ball helps support these initiatives. Last year’s event raised more than $250,000. Donations can be made at www.meridianhealth.com/sweetheartball.
