Each year, the Crystal Ball attracts hundreds of leaders from the community, academic institutions, government, health care industry and biotech executives. The gala evening is a fundraiser for the foundation, with all proceeds benefitting its global research, outreach and patient advocacy programs.

This year’s event, the “Cherry Blossom Extravaganza,” includes an evening of dinner, dancing, a silent auction and awards ceremony. The Foundation will honor Dr. Thomas Starzl with the 2014 Baruch S. Blumberg Prize for pioneering the first human liver transplant in 1963.

Foundation leaders also will announce the recipients of the 2014 Community Commitment Award, Teri and Jim Holton, of Doylestown. Both have provided generous support to the Hepatitis B Foundation with Teri serving as chair of the Crystal Ball auction committee for the past four years and making it a tremendous success. In addition, Teri volunteers regularly in the community and her church and Jim supports many local food pantries with donations from Kellogg where he is a senior vice president.

The Hepatitis B Foundation is accepting auction items and sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information regarding the Crystal Ball, call 215-489-4900.
