About Holly Ball

Holly Ball has raised more than $10 million over the past 45 years for cancer and hospice programming. These funds provide the little extras not covered by insurance that enrich the quality of life for our patients and their families.

For 2020, we are proud to announce that part of your contribution also will support local victims of child abuse and their caregivers who are seen at the Central Minnesota Child Advocacy Center.

Thanks to your gift, these survivors receive specialized forensic interviews, comprehensive medical examinations, client-centered family advocacy, backpacks with personal care and comfort items and immediate access to trauma-focused mental health care.
