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.
2013 Gala: Cherry Blossom Gala (Giving Strength to Hope)
Friday, May 31 - Turning Stone Resort and Casino
Since its inception in 1992, St. Joseph’s Hospital's Gala Dinner Dance has raised more than $3.8 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.
Cherry Blossom Gala, St. Joseph’s Foundation’s 22nd annual Gala Dinner Dance — will be held on Friday, May 31, 2013, at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino.
Cherry blossoms in their beautiful pink blush, happiness and hope will be in abundance at St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation's 22nd annual Gala. Last year nearly 800 of you put on your favorite ball gown, or tux and tie, for the Gala. Sponsored by Central New York Infusion Services, LLC, 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.
