SYRACUSE – St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation’s gala dinner dance netted more than $350,000, exceeding its goal for 2014. St. Joseph’s Foundation hosted the annual black tie optional gala dinner dance on May 30.
The event, held at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino, featured a Passage to India theme. Presenting sponsor was Central New York Infusion Services, LLC; gala co-chairs were Dr. Chaudhury and Mrs. Sheela Davuluri, Mr. Edward and Mrs. Marie Grabowski and Dr. Richard Waldman and Ms. Elaine Mielcarski, CNM. Proceeds from the gala support St. Joseph’s programs and services. Next year’s gala will be held Friday, May 29, 2015.
“We are particularly excited that this year’s Gala’s net proceeds will support the construction of our PACU in the new patient tower, which will be opening in September. Thanks to our co-chairs enthusiasm and Miss America’s appearance,” Doug Smith VP for Development noted, “we have achieved record dollars and one of the best attended events in our history.”
