Ascension Providence Foundation
Since 1854, Providence Hospital, under the spiritual leadership of the Daughters of Charity, has provided quality service and care to the citizens of the Mobile area. Our mission is to work among the sick and needy, and the Daughters are committed to administering care, support and love to their patients.
Through continued guidance, Ascension Providence has grown from a modest 60-bed facility to a 277-acre health care complex in west Mobile. Ascension Providence provides services encompassing the realm of medical knowledge such as outpatient surgery, radiation therapy, laser surgery, and diagnostic and invasive cardiology. However, to continue to offer the highest level of technology, donations from friends and supporters are needed.
Ascension Providence Foundation supports its mission through the presentation of two annual fundraising community events.
2022 Festival of Flowers-LoDa Style in Cathedral Square
The award winning Festival of Flowers will celebrate its 29th year in downtown Mobile’s Cathedral Square by proudly showcasing life-sized living sculptures created by the Mobile area’s best teams of florists, nurseries, landscapers, designers and artists. They will compete for bragging rights for the Festival of Flowers People's Choice Award by highlighting the Gulf Coast trio that draws us home: land, air & sea. These elaborate plant creations will be viewed from a socially distanced space and voted on with a QR code or link. Enjoy outdoor seminars and select vendors that are in keeping with the Festival of Flowers tradition. Special events include a Saturday morning Exotic Car Show, tours of area landmarks, and on Sunday, we will Welcome All Wags at a designated time to enjoy the show with your favorite furry friend. Let's safely have fun, give back to our healthcare community, celebrate the Mobile area and watch as our most creative show off their talents!
Produced by the Ascension Providence Foundation, the 2022 Festival of Flowers will inspire and nurture the gardener in all of us. Recognized in 2021 as Alabama Magazine’s “Best of Bama Charity Event”, Main Street Mobile’s “Downtown Inspiration Award”, and “Best COVID Business Pivot” by Lagniappe Weekly, the 2022 Festival of Flowers continues the tradition of delighting and educating visitors of all ages. March 11-13, come celebrate with us!
