Fishermen’s Hospital Foundations Sweetheart Ball is the foundation’s major fund-raising event of the year. Funds raised at the ball help to purchase equipment for Fishermen’s Community Hospital. The foundation, a volunteer organization made up of community leaders, is able to raise funds in support of hospital projectsthrough these events, because of the support received from businesses and individuals within the community. Our Sweetheart sponsors are the “heart” of the success for this annual ball and they greatly help to increase the proceeds of the event.
