EVENT DESCRIPTION

The Nurse of the Year Gala honors nursing excellence and pays tribute to the tireless efforts of nurses throughout the community while also raising valuable funds for the March of Dimes. The Gala features a cocktail reception, seated dinner, and awards ceremony. There will also be an opportunity to make a 100 percent tax-deductible donation to the March of Dimes as we fight to give every baby a fighting chance! We hope that you will be able to join us as we honor nurses and fight prematurity, birth defects, and infant mortality.

SUPPORT THE MISSION

Every year, 15 million babies are born prematurely worldwide, and 1 million will die before their first birthday. Your gift helps the March of Dimes fund research, education, advocacy and programs that help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies.

FINALIST

The March of Dimes is honored to pay tribute to the nursing profession by recognizing extraordinary
nurses throughout the community. Nurse of the Year events honor those who make a
difference in the lives of so many.
Congratulations to the 2018 Nurse of the Year Finalists
