The Mercy Health Foundation will hold the “Stick It to Diabetes” fundraiser from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at the Hope City Church, 1238 Jaguar Road in Joplin.

The event will promote diabetes awareness while raising money for those who cannot afford medication, insulin, test supplies and other technology.

All proceeds will go to Mercy’s fund for diabetes to help patients in the region.

The evening will include a meal and entertainment by comedian Brad Bonar.
