St. Joseph's Annual Gala



A membership program for supporters of St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center

Strengthening the circle

Since opening its doors in 1869, St. Joseph’s has stood for something special—a commitment to a higher level of care for all those in need, regardless of their background or circumstances.

To help further this mission, the Circle of Caring enables St. Joseph’s to provide enhanced patient comfort and care, and to keep our excellent staff at the forefront of the newest developments in technology and treatment.

Today, Central New Yorkers rely on St. Joseph’s more than any other hospital. And our commitment to excellence is nationally recognized - our cardiac, orthopedic and vascular services are among the best in the country.

St. Joseph’s is dedicated to maintaining its commitment to superior health care, but we need your support. Please help keep the Circle strong with a donation today.

Expanding the circle

When you join the Circle of Caring with an annual donation of $1,000 or more, you’re not only benefiting St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation, but Central New York as well.

Your gift is vital to helping St. Joseph’s expand its reach to meet the growing needs of the community.

Join the Circle to commemorate a deceased loved one, to honor a living family member or friend, or simply to show your commitment to quality health care.

An annual springtime fund-raising event, this black-tie-optional Gala offers an evening of dining and dancing to benefit special projects of St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center.

2014 Gala: Passage to India, an evening of culture and cuisine to benefit St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation

Friday, May 30 - Turning Stone Resort Casino

Since its inception in 1992, St. Joseph’s Hospital's Gala Dinner Dance has raised more than $4.5 million to benefit hospital programs, including cardiac services, medical imaging, the college of nursing, operating rooms, dialysis services and the neonatal intensive care unit. Proceeds from the gala play an important part in St. Joseph’s ability to provide a higher level of care to our Central New York community.

This colorful, festive event will be a tribute to Indian culture filled with zeal and enthusiasm anticipating over 800 attendees. Central New York Infusion Services, LLC, will once again be the presenting sponsor. The evening will feature dining and dancing to the live music of Atlas. Cocktails begin at 6:45 p.m. in the event center atrium, with dinner and dancing following at 8 p.m. in the main ballroom. Black tie is optional. Overnight accommodations are available every year at a discounted rate by calling 1-800-771-7711.

New this year the Gala will feature a special cash raffle with cash prizes of $10,000, $5,000 and two $2,500 winners!
