Coming February 2021
The AnMed Health Foundation Board of Trustees has developed an alternative plan for the 27th annual Camellia Ball. Coming in February 2021, Camellia Home will bring small groups together at dinner parties in exquisite homes throughout the community.
Our goal is to follow CDC/DHEC guidelines for safety, provide support for the mission and programs of AnMed Health and maintain the significance the Camellia Ball has held for the past 26 years. Although we will miss having the ball in its traditional fashion, Camellia Home will provide a safe alternative for these unique times - and we know it will still be a fun, social, and heartfelt experience for all participants.
Safety is our top priority and has been at the forefront of planning this unique experience. Following guidelines from the CDC, DHEC, and AnMed Health HICS (Hospital Incident Command System). Host homes will have 12 people or less to observe gathering guidelines and allow for social distancing.
2020 has been a challenging year, and the COVID-19 crisis has made a significant impact on our health system, our community, and the world. Your support is more important now than ever and will help to ensure that AnMed Health's vital programs and services serve our community for years to come.
The Camellia Ball is Anderson's premier philanthropic event and has raised $3 million to support the mission and programs of AnMed Health. The 27th year of the Camellia Ball will undoubtedly look a lot different, but it will be a unique experience to bring Camellia Ball supporters together again.
