Summa Health Sapphire Ball: The Movie

Now playing in home theaters everywhere


Produced in place of the 2020 live gala, “Summa Health Sapphire Ball: The Movie” celebrates nearly two decades of Summa’s signature event and showcases the spirit of generosity that has always distinguished the Akron community. Past honorary chairs and special guests recall their favorite memories with hosts Cliff Deveny, M.D., Summa Health president and chief executive officer, and veteran emcee Dave Lieberth.

Since 2001, the Sapphire Ball has supported Summa Health’s clinically excellent care and life-saving programs, raising more than $12 million to benefit Summa Health patients and their families. While guests were unable to gather in person this year, community support is more important than ever. A gift of any size to Summa Health will help provide the highest quality, compassionate care to all those in need. Give now through the website or text Summa to 91999.
