The Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation’s successful fundraising year was celebrated on Saturday January 25, 2020 with a Mardi Gras party, Hopkins County style! The event transformed the Civic Center for an evening of fun, food and fellowship.

Excitement was high as couples entered the foyer to the music of a jazz band. Meredith Caddell, CEO of the hospital’s Healthcare Foundation, introduced the Gala Chairs, David and Pam Black, whose leadership during 2019 brought a successful year of fundraising for hospital needs.
