FAIRLAWN — Black and white were the colors of the night as 175 guests gathered March 16 at Fairlawn Country Club for the Summit County Medical Alliance’s gala.

The theme for the event was “Black & White,” and funds raised benefit Mobile Meals and the Alliance’s community health projects, according to event officials.

Cindy Murphy, gala chair, welcomed the guests, and Mary Beth Ellison and Debra Sanderson, Summit County Medical Alliance co-presidents, thanked everyone for coming, according to event officials.

The Summit County Medical Alliance founded Mobile Meals 42 years ago and has contributed $1.3 million to the work of the agency, according to event officials.
