 Patrons Event benefiting HealthWorks! Children’s Health Education Center
Friday evening – October 13, 2017
BancorpSouth Arena

STEVE HARVEY arguably is one of today’s hottest celebrity stars. The comedian and best-selling author plays host to the widely popular Family Feud, Celebrity Family Feud, The Steve Harvey Show, Little Big Shots and the recently released Funderdome TV shows. Mixed among these accomplishments is also a successful businessman in manufacturing, marketing and retail endeavors.

Beyond his celebrity, though, Steve Harvey is a dedicated family man with two primary themes in his life: God and manhood!

Health Care Foundation is honored to host Mr. Harvey for this very special, invitation only patron’s event to benefit HealthWorks! Children’s Health Education Center.
Because of his close friendship with an important Foundation benefactor and his fondness or children, Mr. Harvey has agreed to be our guest free of charge, allowing all event proceeds to benefit HealthWorks!.

We hope you will join us for this exciting event!
