(Apple Valley)– St. Joseph Health, St. Mary Foundation’s 24th Annual GALA is set for September 19 at the Hilton Garden Inn. This year organizers hope to break another GALA fundraising record in support of purchasing a new MRI machine. The machine will streamline the flow of patients in St. Mary’s Emergency Department.
“We raised a record amount of money last year,” said Vice President of Fund Development, Paul Kaminski. “Our community loves St. Mary and this GALA is an opportunity for them to show their support.”
This year’s GALA will play host to a very entertaining Johan Graham, from I-15 Auctions as the auctioneer followed by a high energy performance from Citrus College’s “Nightshift.”
The GALA will be held on September 19, 2015 at 6 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Victorville.
With limited seating and half of the tickets already sold, reservations should be made soon. You may call Jackie Morgan at the St. Mary Foundation office for further information and reservations at (760) 946-8167.
