2019-20 COMMUNITY & SOCIAL EVENTS
The Alliance is pleased to host two community service events each year, Doctor's Day and Cinderella Dress Day. We continue to offer social events for members to get to know each other and offer other physician families support and the expertise of their experience. In 2014, we held the 75th Diamond Anniversary Gala in conjunction with the Fort Wayne Medical Society and the help of local sponsors.
Always a fun social event that kicks off our calendar year, this is a great opportunity to meet new Alliance members and hear about the work we do to support our community, upcoming projects and ways to get involved.
This has become one of our most highly-anticipated social events of the year for Alliance members, friends and family! Guests are treated to lunch and an exclusive shopping experience at our Bazaar of local merchants, who kindly donate 10% of their sales back to the Alliance.
Approaching our fifth year, members of the FWMS-Alliance and the Isaac Knapp District Dental Society join together to share a meal, friendships, and a mutual commitment of service to our community. Members also collect and bring items for donation to the YWCA Women's Shelter.
This is the day when the Alliance endeavors to educate children in the science of medicine, by providing them the opportunity to visit with doctors, nurses, dietitians, and other health care professionals to learn about careers in medicine. In addition, this event makes available important general health information to children and their families.
This event, in its 17th year, is free to any young woman in the Fort Wayne community. We provide a variety of health related topics from educators such as Lutheran Health Network, Parkview Health, and the McMillen Center for Health Education, as well as information about medical careers to all attendees. And of course, we provide FREE prom dresses and accessories to each and every young woman who joins us.
