Please join us for our inaugural Red Door Gala, a fundraising event to celebrate St. Rita’s 100 years of healing. Inspired by the “The Door of Mercy,” a poem written by one of St. Rita’s founding Sisters, we will commemorate and honor our mission of mercy.

Proceeds from the event will support the Mercy Health Foundation Greater Lima’s Legacy Fund, a newly created fund that supports a current critical medical need in our community. This year, the Red Door Gala will fund initiatives focused on our community’s opioid epidemic.

Suggested dress for the event is "cocktail attire." This typically suggests party dresses for women, either short or long, and a suit or sport coat with or without a tie for men. Of course, red is encouraged for the Red Door Gala. Black tie is not required.
