The NATIVE HEALTH Board of Directors is once again pleased to announce the Fourth Annual Laughter is the Best Medicine: A Night Out with NATIVE HEALTH Fundraiser. Saturday, September 16, 2017. Please consider becoming a sponsor or contribute to our Silent Auction.

The NATIVE HEALTH Board of Directors invites you to participate in its annual fund-raising and community awards event—Laughter is the Best Medicine: A night out with NATIVE HEALTH, Saturday, September 16, 2017 at the Orange Tree Golf Club and Resort - 10601 North 56th Street, Scottsdale, AZ. This year’s featured entertainment will be the American Navajo comedy duo James & Ernie.

Funds raised through attendance, sponsorships, donations, and the silent auction will provide direct financial support to the NATIVE HEALTH Emergency Assistance Program—a program that assists Native American families with the financial costs of travel, shelter, food and personal care when a family member is transported to a Phoenix Metropolitan hospital for medical emergencies.

We will also be honoring community members and organizations who have shown outstanding service to the Phoenix community. Past honorees include; Native American advocate, John Lewis; The Association of American Indian Physicians; community advocates Erma Mundy, Cecilia Miller, Diane Daychild, Karen Thorne and Aunt Rita’s Foundation. Laughter is the Best Medicine is a great opportunity to get you or your organization's name in front of hundreds of attendees while supporting a charitable cause.
