The 48th Annual Mercy Ball will be held on Saturday, March 7, at 6 p.m. at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in downtown San Diego. Featuring fine cuisine, live musical entertainment and a high-energy live auction, the fundraising gala will benefit cancer support services for patients and their families on the Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego campus.

Many of these patient support services will be housed in the historic Mercy College of Nursing building to complement the exceptional clinical care to be offered at the adjacent Prebys Cancer Center, part of Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center. Due to open in 2022, Prebys Cancer Center will offer comprehensive cancer care services for patients throughout central and south San Diego County.

This year’s Mercy Ball will also honor Richard P. Woltman and family for their decades of support and leadership at Scripps Mercy Hospital.

The Manchester Grand Hyatt is located at 1 Market Place in San Diego. Tickets are $600 per person or $6,000 for a table. For more information about the event or sponsorship, please visit, or contact Scripps’ special events department at or 858-678-7174.
