The Honor Ball

With its rich history and 45-year legacy, the Honor Ball returns Saturday, February 26, 2022, at The Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Ariz. As one of the Valley’s most anticipated galas, HonorHealth Foundation anticipates 800 guests will gather in person to enjoy this year's black-tie affair. Our guests have come to love The Honor Ball’s cocktail reception, dinner and dancing to Impulse, their favorite orchestra, courtesy of West Coast Music of Beverly Hills, California.

We’ll also celebrate honoree Howard Katz, a gentleman and philanthropist who, along with his wife Ellen, have made our community a better place. With a 20-year history of investment in HonorHealth, Howard is now looking to the future... to ensure all patients have access to world-class healthcare and services, regardless of their economic status. You’ll be inspired by his vision!

This magnificent black-tie affair attracts the Valley’s most generous and supportive community leaders who understand that philanthropy is central to innovation, advanced technology, and vital programs and services in healthcare today. Since its inception, The Honor Ball has raised more than $17.5 million for HonorHealth programs and services.

Funds raised this year will expand HonorHealth’s impact, touch more patients and deliver hope for new treatments. Beneficiaries include:

  • HonorHealth Research Institute – cancer research
  • Bob Bové Neuroscience Institute at HonorHealth
  • Cardiovascular Center of Excellence
  • Ellen and Howard Katz Family Patient Assistance Endowment

For more information on supporting these vital HonorHealth programs through The Honor Ball, please visit the "Registration" and "Sponsorship Opportunities" tabs, or call 480-587-5013.
