At this year’s Crystal Ball, we are pleased to be honoring longtime supporters of the Arthritis Foundation, Carole and John Harrison. We are both thrilled and proud that this duo is, for once, on the receiving end as they are always the first to give their time and resources. Carole has served on the committee for over seven years, and, together, they have been patrons of the ball for nearly a decade. In addition to their Arthritis Foundation work, they are involved with other organizations including The Atlanta History Center and the Shepherd Center. The Harrisons are not only generous, but truly humble and we feel they are most deserving of this honor. Their compassion and support is deeply appreciated.
We will also be recognizing Northside Hospital as this year’s Corporate Honoree. As many of you know, Northside Hospital has been a tremendous supporter of the Arthritis Foundation. Over the past decade, they have contributed more than $100,000 through teams and sponsorship for our local events including the Crystal Ball and the Atlanta Walk. The value of Northside Hospital’s time, talent and support simply cannot be measured, and we are honored to be recognizing them at the Crystal Ball.
