Holiday Festival - 2020 Event - Virtual
Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Foundation will kick off the holiday season in November with the 21st annual Holiday Festival. This year’s event – to benefit the Sarah Bush Lincoln Children’s Dental Program - will be Virtual due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

There will also be an opportunity to support Hospice by purchasing a Memory Star or making a general donation or one in honor of a Hospice nurse or caregiver.

Golf Benefit
June 12, 2020 - Cancelled
Because of the uncertainty of golf limitations and social distancing requirements due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Foundation has made the difficult decision to cancel our 31st Annual Golf Benefit, scheduled for Friday, June 12.
