Heritage Awards


The annual CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs Heritage Awards honor individuals from southwest Iowa for their professional and personal contributions to the community in the following categories: Arts & Humanities, Business, Education, and Health & Human Services.

The Heritage Awards were created to celebrate and pay homage to those who have enriched the community and established a legacy on which future Heritage Award honorees can build. This year we will be honoring Jerry Mathiasen (Arts & Humanities), Larry Winum (Business), Martha Bruckner (Education), Marie Knedler (Health & Human Services).

The event, now in its 37th year, will be hosted by CHI Health Foundation and CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs on March 14, 2020, at the Mid-America Center, 1 Arena Way, in Council Bluffs.

Join us for cocktails and live music at 6 p.m., followed by the program and dinner at 7 p.m. Valet parking will be available, and the event is black tie optional.

Registration is now open. If you are unable to attend and would like to make a donation please visit our Heritage Awards donation page.
