Events to support our mission
Our annual Spring fundraising event, A Toast to Health, highlights WelcomeHealth's medical accomplishments by honoring a volunteer with the Jessie Bryant “Service First” Award. Guests will enjoy a nice meal, drinks, entertainment, clinic presentation and silent auction with our community friends.
A good time was had by all on Saturday, April 7, 2018, at Arkansas Air & Military Museum in Fayetteville. A special thank you and good-bye was offered to former board member, Mary Alice Serafini, and Dr. David Jackson was presented the Jessie Bryant Service First Award for his help in getting pediatric services started in 2017!. A murder mystery show was performed by Tableside Theater and a lovely meal was catered by KFB Events. The event raised $18,000.
Our annual Fall fundraising event, An Evening to Shine, celebrates WelcomeHealth’s dental accomplishments by honoring a volunteer with the JB Hays “Community Needs” Award. A fun night of socializing, entertainment, silent auction, clinic presentation, food and drinks are enjoyed by all at this event.
An amazing night was had by all on Friday, September 7, 2018, at Hilton Garden Inn in Fayetteville.

Design Your Own Fundraiser
Invite all your closest friends and relatives for your birthday party, but in lieu of gifts, ask for a donation to WelcomeHealth. Make a gift in honor of a teacher, mentor or friend. Send memorials for a special person who has passed. Create your own peer-to-peer fundraising event in which you go bowling, have a bake sale, yard sale, walk or race and ask your peers to support your efforts in raising money for WelcomeHealth. The sky is the limit!

Almost every month, we have some amazing restaurants around Northwest Arkansas that will donate proceeds from their profits during a day of service.
