The Fund hosts a number of special events each year to recognize outstanding leadership and voluntary efforts in the work of improving New York’s health care. Each provides opportunities to support the Fund’s own work, while celebrating the dedication and important role of health care and community leaders and volunteers.
Bringing together health care, business, and community leaders, the Fund's annual Gala honors extraordinary contributions to hospitals and health care in New York.
The 2015 Gala will be held on Monday, October 5.
The 2014 Gala was held Monday, October 6, honoring Michael A. Stocker, MD, with the Health Care Leadership Award, Jennie L. and Richard K. DeScherer with the Distinguished Community Service Award, and Paul E. Francis with the Special Tribute . See photos from the 2014 event.
