St. Joseph's Annual Gala

Be a part of St. Joseph's Walkways of Caring with an engraved brick or bench in one of three beautiful courtyard settings. Your brick or bench may pay tribute to a family member, friend or military hero; leave a message for future generations; or simply include your name among these symbols of love and honor.

Your tax-deductible gift will support programs throughout the hospital network, including the college of nursing.
The three Walkways of Caring:
  • St. Francis Garden is located at the front of the hospital.  Honorees may include a deceased loved one, a special physician or hospital department, or simply your own name as a proud donor.
  • Walk of Valor, at the flagpole in front of the hospital, pays tribute to veterans, reservists and active military personnel.
  • Caritas Park (Latin for “charity” or “love”) is located in front of the college of nursing. Celebrate a compassionate nurse, a favorite student or beloved alumnus.
Engraved bricks are installed three times each year in spring, summer and fall. Benches can be engraved at any time and are only available in Caritas Park. The bricks have a three- or five-line limit of 14 characters each, including spaces and punctuation. For assistance with your layout, simply include a note with your order form and we will contact you.

For more information about our Walkways of Caring, contact the Foundation at (315) 703-2137, email Foundation@sjhsyr.org or see the Walkways of Caring brochure.

To order your brick or bench, fill out our
pledge form and enclose your tax-deductible gift for the amount of bricks/benches ordered. Checks should be made payable to "St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation." Please mail your form and payment to St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation.

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!
