NOW OPEN: Nominations for the
13th Annual Raven’s Ball Luminary Awards

The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation, the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium’s charitable arm, will host the 13th annual Raven’s Ball on Saturday, March 28 at the Hotel Captain Cook in Anchorage.

The Raven’s Ball is one of Alaska’s premier black tie parties and dynamic fundraising events, and in 2020 we will continue its tradition of philanthropy that benefits the Foundation’s three key initiatives: improving medical care; strengthening wellness and prevention efforts; and promoting healthy village environments.

One annual Raven’s Ball highlight is the presentation of the Luminary Awards, which recognize individuals for their dedication and outstanding contribution to the Alaska Tribal Health System and community.

The nominations deadline for the 2020 Raven’s Ball Luminary Awards is end of business on Friday, November 29. Please click here to download the 2020 Raven’s Ball Luminary Nomination Packet.
