Jacob C. Ninan, M.D., To Be Honored At 15th Annual Cornette Ball
St. Maryís of Michigan Foundation is pleased to announce that Jacob C. Ninan, M.D., has been named the 2009 recipient of the Spirit of St. Vincent Award. Dr. Ninan will be honored at the St. Maryís of Michigan Foundation 15th Annual Cornette Ball scheduled for November 21, 2009, at 6:00 p.m., at Horizons Conference Center in Saginaw.
The Spirit of St. Vincent Award is presented annually by St. Maryís of Michigan Foundation to at least one highly respected physician who has rendered long and noteworthy service to the Saginaw community and surrounding counties.
The Cornette Ball, one of the regionís premier black-tie galas, launches the holiday season in Saginaw and Northeastern Michigan. The evening consists of a cocktail reception, five-course gourmet dinner and dancing to the music of Detroit band Skyline & The Back Street Horns.
This is an exceptionally special year for the Cornette Ball as it is not only our 15th Crystal Anniversary but proceeds this year will push us well over the $1 million mark in funds raised.
This year's proceeds will be used to purchase the Volcano Imaging System with Intravascular Ultrasound to enhance St. Mary's of Michigan's comprehensive cardiovascular program and services for the Great Lakes Bay region and beyond.
Tickets for the event are $150 each and sponsorships are available. For ticket and sponsorship information, please contact the St. Maryís of Michigan Foundation at (989) 907-8300 or visit www.stmarysofmichigan.org/foundation
