Philanthropy in Action

75th Annual Charity Ball

Proceeds from the 75th Annual Mount Nittany Health Foundation Charity Ball will directly support the new Patient Tower, which is under construction and set to open in 2026. This expansive facility will be transformational in patient experience and in the services provided to the community.

75th Annual Mount Nittany Health Foundation Charity Ball

The Mount Nittany Health Foundation Charity Ball, now in its 75th year, is one of the most prestigious fundraisers in our community. Through the Charity Ball, Mount Nittany Health has raised funds for a variety of its own programs and services, including the Family Medicine Residency Program, Behavioral Healthcare, our Children’s Advocacy Center, and most recently, the newly renovated Joseph V. and Suzanne P. Paterno Women and Children’s Services Unit at Mount Nittany Medical Center.
