2007 Mum Ball

Nearly 500 patrons danced on rooftops around the world while raising more than $ 1.1 million for Martin Memorial at the 13th Annual Chrysanthemum Ball on Nov. 3. Hosted at the Stuart Jet Center, the gala's theme was "City Nights, City Lights." Guests were transported to famous skylines via 360-degree projection, which transformed the airplane hangar into a candlelit rooftop supper club.

Mum Ball Chair Linda Evans and Vice-Chair Bonnie Johnston led a committee of volunteers to raise funds to renovate a cardiac catheterization lab at Martin Memorial's Frances Langford Heart Center. This is the second new lab funded by the Mum Ball, which has contributed more than $ 6 million in the past five years for new equipment to save lives in our community. Thanks to the many sponsors who gave from $ 1,500 to $ 50,000, the Chrysanthemum Ball's city lights help bring big-city health care to the Treasure Coast.
