Celebrate Health, Celebrate Life
More than 500 guests attended Celebration 2015, St. Joseph Hospital’s annual fundraising gala. Community supporters, business leaders, and guests gathered at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa on Oct. 17 to take part in an evening of silent and live auctions, raffle drawings and fine dining with live entertainment starring Jay Leno.
More than $420,000 was raised, which will support Innovating for a Healthier Community, a $50 million comprehensive campaign launched at the event.
The St. Joseph Hospital campaign encompasses innovative programs and technology for the Structural Heart Disease program; the Care for the Poor Endowment; the Emergency Care Center; the Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment; the Nursing Excellence Fund, which includes an endowment component; and advanced imaging technology.
