Last December, generous Saratogians gathered for the annual Snow Ball, which raises funds for The Flower and Fruit Mission, an organization that equips and maintains the maternity unit of Saratoga Hospital.

Held this year at the Canfield Casino, the ball welcomed guests dressed in black-tie attire, who were treated to a sit-down dinner, memorable decor and live music by The Accents.

“Since the beginning of The Flower and Fruit Mission in 1904, we’ve had 13 members who have dedicated more than half a century of service,” says mission President Susan Halstead. “We’ve raised more than $1.5 million, which has gone towards purchasing medical equipment, including a birthing simulator and nurses’ educational grants.”

First held as a dance in 1911, The Snow Ball is one of Saratoga Springs’ oldest benefits, and through the work of Halstead and her team, will surely continue to be for years to come.
