The Friends of Mercy was founded in 1935 as an organization of men dedicated to volunteering their time and efforts to raise funds for the construction of the new Hospital and advancement of medical and surgical care for the patients of Mercy Medical Center. In addition to the Mercy Ball, the group sponsors several fund-raising events each year, including a black-tie St. Patrick's Dinner in March, and a Golf Outing in September. In the past four years, the Friends have raised over $1.25 million which supported a new radiology suite in the hospital's Express Emergency Care Center, and for the hospital's new North Pavilion acute care facility.
