AdventHealth NSB Foundation: Raising Funds to Benefit our Community

AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach Foundation was created in 1995 to fund AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach’s mission of whole-person healing. Working together with philanthropic community leaders, the foundation provides much-needed support for our non-profit hospital. AdventHealth NSB Foundation has 17 board members raising money for our community hospital.

By helping people find healing close to home, providing for their physical and spiritual needs, and offering expert medical treatment, we’re not just changing the world we live in – we’re changing the world of every patient who walks through our doors. To provide the best possible care for as many people as possible: that’s our goal.


Who knew changing the world could be so much fun? Every year we host a number of hospital fundraisers designed to support and bolster our hospital’s work. Bring your friends or family and find out how your donations help us serve others. We think you’ll have a blast. 

The AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach Foundation Board of Directors is thrilled to bring back our 24th Annual Holiday Charity Ball, our annual signature fundraising event held on November 5 at the Smyrna Yacht Club. The event features an evening of delicious food, fun networking, dancing and an exciting silent auction while supporting AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach! This premier fundraising event is a night of fun and dancing that benefits AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach’s purchase of an MRI Monitor and Infusion Pump, helping us to continue bringing outstanding imaging and care to patients in our community. 

The Holiday Charity Ball is a New Smyrna Beach tradition that began in 1996. New Smyrna Beach philanthropist and business owner Kaye Walker planned the first event with the goal to support various local charities. COVID stopped us from hosting the Holiday Charity Ball for the past two years, but we are excited to bring it back in 2022!
