IT'S DERBY TIME!
2016 marks the 11th year for the HSHS St. Joseph’s Foundation annual spring gala. This year we are excited to announce many changes to the event, including the new theme, Kentucky Derby Gala. The event, which will be held on Saturday, May 7, at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Highland, will feature a live viewing of the race, games, best hat and tie contest, dinner, and mint julep cocktails.
During the past 11 years, the HSHS St. Joseph's Foundation Spring Gala has raised more than $630,000 through event sponsorships and attendance. Money raised by the Foundation buys equipment including the latest diagnostic technology for cancer and women's health, such as stereotactic breast biopsies and 3D mammography. Contributions last year enabled us to equip the new St. Joseph's Hospital with state-of-the-art technology and services. Gifts support the Friends Van, a community service that helps seniors get to and from appointments safely, as well as charity care for those who cannot afford healthcare. Through the continued and generous support of sponsors during the Gala’s first 10 years, the hospital’s mission of promoting the healing ministry of Jesus Christ has continued to flourish.
Speaking on behalf of the HSHS St. Joseph’s Foundation, we are grateful for the community’s support of the hospital during its 137-year history in Highland. And I thank you in advance for your support this year.
Plans are underway for the 11th Annual Gala scheduled for May 7, 2016, at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Highland. Please consider attending this fun, redesigned event.
We appreciate any assistance you can provide the HSHS St. Joseph’s Foundation. Your support ensures that our hospital remains vital to the health of our community.
