The 29th Annual Grand Summer Ball is set to take place at the historic Marriott Grand Hotel in Point Clear on August 22. Proceeds from the event will benefit the expansion of Thomas Hospital’s birth center.

This year’s event will be chaired by mother-daughter duo Terri Carlton and Mackenzie Chandler. Proceeds from this year’s event will help fund the “Life … It’s Worth Giving” birth center expansion campaign. Upgrades to the facility will help support the growing healthcare needs of Baldwin County. The improvements will also allow Thomas Hospital’s medical staff and team of employees to continue the mission to provide the safest and most expedited care for women, infants and children in a new and modern environment.
