Infirmary Foundation Special Events - Infirmary Health

Crystal Ball

The Infirmary Foundation celebrated its 8th Annual Crystal Ball on April 20 at the historic Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel. Martin Lester, M.D., cardiologist with Diagnostic & Medical Clinic, was honored during the event. Dr. Lester has practiced with Diagnostic & Medical Clinic for more than 50 years and is a pioneer in cardiovascular care.

The Crystal Ball was organized by event chair, Lissa Watkins, who helped create a memorable evening of fabulous food and live entertainment. The event raised more than $400,000, which will be used to fund a Paxman Scalp Cooling System for Infirmary Cancer Care. FDA-approved, the Scalp Cooling System helps patients undergoing chemotherapy retain their hair. To view photos from the Crystal Ball, visit
