Cornette Ball

21st Annual Cornette Ball
to Honor Shiraz M. Shariff, M.D., FACC, FSCAI
Saturday, November 21, 2015
St. Mary’s of Michigan Foundation is pleased to announce that Shiraz Shariff M.D., FACC, FSCAI, is this year’s recipient of the prestigious Spirit of St. Vincent Award. Dr. Shariff will be honored during the 21st Annual Cornette Ball on Saturday, November 21, 2015, at 6:00 p.m. at Horizons Conference Center, Saginaw.

Dr. Shariff has been an influential and beloved cardiac physician in the Great Lakes Bay region since 1983. Dr. Shariff is a practicing interventional cardiologist at Michigan CardioVascular Institute and St. Mary’s of Michigan.

Throughout his career, Dr. Shariff has treated and performed thousands of life-saving procedures on patients. Patients consider him part of their extended family and will travel hundreds of miles for follow-up care.

St. Mary’s of Michigan Foundation’s Cornette Ball is one of the grandest black-tie galas in the region. The festive evening includes a cocktail hour, a magnificent five-course gourmet meal and live music by Detroit’s Intrigue. The Spirit of St. Vincent Award is presented annually to at least one highly respected physician who has rendered long and noteworthy service to the Great Lakes Bay community and beyond.

Proceeds from the Cornette Ball will support the hospital’s new cardiac ultrasound equipment. The new equipment will provide 3-D imaging to assist physicians in treating patients with heart failure, aid in diagnosing valve and other heart defects, as well as assist with Electrophysiology studies.

During the last 20 years, the event has raised more than two million dollars with 100% of community contributions helping secure equipment and providing life-saving services that will aide in the treatment and healing of our patients.

For information about attending the event please call (989) 907-8300.
