2018 MFA Benefit

The Misericordia Family Association (MFA) Benefit is the annual celebration of all things Misericordia. Now in its 58th year, it has grown from a humble beginning as a dinner for 200 people to an evening of dinner, dancing, friendship and fun. The MFA Benefit, enjoyed by over 2,000 family members and friends of Misericordia, also serves as our iconic fundraiser, providing $1.1 million to support the mission of Misericordia. This Benefit evening is also the singular time that Misericordia’s families, friends, staff and residents come together to celebrate the inspiration found in Sister Rosemary Connelly’s enduring message. While it is organized and presented by Misericordia’s families, we invite all friends and future friends of Misericordia to join us in honoring Misericordia and all those who call it home.
