Presenting Sponsor: Illinicare

Join Alivio Medical Center for its 27th Annual Gala Dinner, Una Presencia Activa, on 06.16.16 at Lacuna Artist Lofts. 2150 S. Canalport Ave., Chicago, IL 60608. North Entrance.

In 2015, more than 23,000 individuals and families received medical care from Alivio, including a significant number of undocumented patients who are not covered under the Affordable Care Act.  Even in this time of healthcare reform, private support is more critical than ever in bridging the financial gap caused by delays in state funding coupled with the substantial increase in basic operational expenses required to provide quality medical care.

Together, we can make it possible for Alivio to continue to provide comprehensive medical care to the people who need it most.

Una Presencia Activa will include a VIP rooftop happy hour, silent auction, live entertainment, networking, delicious food and drinks. All sponorships, donations and ticket sales will go towards Alivio's patients so that Alivio Medical Center can provide its patients with quality and culturally sensitive care.

This year, Alivio Medical Center will honor the following incredible invididuals for their hardwork in promoting wellness in underserved communities:
