Over 25 years the St. Charles Foundation has raised over $31-million to support the St. Charles Healthcare System.
Spokesperson Cora Gangware says the annual "Saints Gala" fundraiser later this month is very important to all departments at St. Charles. "We really have touched lives that have come into the hospital for any reason you can think of. From the joy of having a baby to the difficult times of end of life issues, we have supported each of those departments with many, many millions of dollars of philanthropy; donations that have come from this community and foundation across Oregon and beyond."
Gangware says the "Saints Gala" celebrating the 25th anniversary of the St. Charles foundation is pulling out all the stops this year with a dinner, auctions and lots of entertainment.
This years' celebration will benefit the Emergency Department and its life-saving initiatives.
The black tie "Saints Gala" will be at the Riverhouse on October 26th
