Mary Greeley Medical Center to host annual benefit at Hilton

Mary Greeley Medical Center will be hosting its annual benefit at Hilton Coliseum on Saturday, May 3, starting at 4 p.m.

Attendees will have the opportunity to cheer for their favorite horse during a live broadcast of the Kentucky Derby. They will also be able to take part in both silent and live auctions, gaming tables and a poker tournament.

The proceeds from the annual benefit support the William R. Bliss Cancer Center, which offers central Iowans the best cancer care available, close to home. Last year, nearly $230,000 was raised. Funds raised also go to the Cancer Resource Center, which helps cancer patients through the process and provides them a free wig or head covering while receiving treatment.

Tickets are $75 per person and preregistration is required. For more information on the annual benefit, including how to register, please visit or call the Mary Greeley Medical Center Foundation at 515-239-2147.
