The OSF St. Joseph Foundation will be hosting the 20th Annual World Tour fundraising event on Friday, February 20, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., in the atrium of Eastland Medical Plaza I (Entrance C). Tickets are $40 per person ($20 is tax deductible). For more information, or to purchase tickets, please call (309) 665-4900 or visit https://osfhealthcarefoundation.org/.
The theme of this year’s World Tour is “Love around the World.” Guests will be taken on an imaginary tour around the globe. From Europe to the Pacific Rim, from America to Australia, guests will enjoy sampling many imported beers, wines, and delicious cuisine.
The event will also include a DJ and door prizes. World Tour 2015 will also offer a silent auction. Auction items include various gift cards to restaurants, an overnight stay in a luxurious executive suite, tickets to a variety of sporting events, as well as tickets to the Eric Church concert at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in March of this year.
The proceeds from World Tour 2015 will support the new hybrid operating room at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center. Often called “Operating Rooms of the Future,” hybrid operating rooms provide a collaborative surgical environment, which allows for more efficient care. These hybrid operating rooms have been shown to decrease the length of stay for patients, reducing the opportunity for infections, and improving recovery times. The hybrid operating room at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center will be the first in McLean County.
Media is welcome to attend. Media inquiries can be directed to Valerie Hawkins at (309) 665-5733 or at Valerie.firstname.lastname@example.org.
