Help Ukraine

In light of the news of the attacks on Ukraine, we would like to extend the opportunity to help the community of Kharkov (a city in northeastern Ukraine).

One of the hospital associates has a spouse who is from this town and his family is still there. The hospital was able to send medical equipment. Additionally, and through the generosity of many others, we were able to establish a fund through our Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation to raise funds and send them directly to help this town.

To donate to this effort, go to Online Giving (christushealth.org) and select “Help Ukraine” in the drop-down list.

Events

Local Fitness Court – Grand Opening

CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulfur Springs is proud to support the new local outdoor fitness court located in Pacific Park. Please join us for the grand opening/ribbon cutting on Friday, March 25 at 10:30 a.m.

2022 Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation Lights of Life Gala

The Lights of Life Gala is scheduled for Saturday, April 2, 2022 from 6 p.m. to midnight at the Civic Center. This year’s theme “Under the Big Top” reflects our desire for fun and frivolity after a long season of hardship. The gala promises to be another dazzling evening of food, dancing and bidding on incredible live and silent auction items.

This year’s Lights of Life Gala Chairs are fourth-generation Hopkins County natives, sisters Markeda Fisher and Kayla Price Mitchell.

Shannon Barker, Executive Director of the Foundation, said, “I am delighted to be working with Markeda and Kayla. When they arrived as the Bearded Ladies to reveal the theme, Under the Big Top, I knew we were in good hands! They make everyone laugh, but also have the experience and connections to ensure a successful event. Their impressive history and dedication to Hopkins County is evidenced by their past and present community involvement. We are grateful that they consider the Health Foundation to be a cause worth investing their efforts in.
