Mercyhealth Development Foundation is pleased to announce the date and location for its 2022 Charity Ball event to benefit the House of Mercy Homeless Center.

The event will be held Saturday, October 1, at The Celtic House, 1417 W. Airport Road, Janesville. This black-tie evening begins at 5 pm with a social hour, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, followed by a gourmet dinner, music and a collection of truly outstanding items and packages to bid on. The cost is $125 per person.

The House of Mercy is a 25-bed homeless center that provides homeless families with short-term emergency shelter and access to housing, job placement and child care resources. Since opening in 1996, the center has provided shelter and support to more than 8,000 individuals, half of whom were children.

With the generous support of our community, the House of Mercy will continue to provide housing and crucial resources to those in need. Money raised from this night will provide homeless families with individualized success planning, rent deposits, education expense assistance, transportation, child care assistance and other needs.
