The 40th Anniversary Mercy Ball, “Tune in to Mercy,” was held in Little Italy at Anthology, raising more than $210,000 for the Scripps Cancer Center at Scripps Mercy Hospital. Guests enjoyed cuisine from executive chef Eric Bauer and were treated to a special performance by Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Patti Austin. Chairs for this year’s gala were J.D. Bols and Brittany Jones, in honor of wife and mother Lisa Bols, who passed away after a battle with colon cancer. Mayor Jerry Sanders acted as honorary chairman.
