La Grange – Nearly $200,000 was raised last month during the La Grange Memorial Hospital Foundation Celebrating the Journey Gala.
Co-Chairs Nick and Carolyn Pann and Drs. Jamal and Wafa Daki, along with 30 gala committee members, hosted more than 300 people Nov. 10 at the Hyatt Lodge at the McDonald’s campus in Oak Brook.
Event proceeds will benefit the Patient Care Center at Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital. Underwriters, sponsors and guests, as well as a matching grant from the Community Memorial Foundation, contributed to the outpouring of support.
This year’s gala gathered physicians and friends of the foundation to celebrate the hospital’s many achievements throughout its journey toward patient care excellence. Guests dined on steak and salmon and enjoyed a fun evening with fellow foundation benefactors.
Following brief remarks from the co-chairs, the evening kicked off with the band Maggie Speaks, who kept the guests dancing. Guests also had their pictures taken in an event photo booth. “The strong outpouring of support and engagement from our community is a very special thing,” said Lary Davis, Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital CEO. “We are very grateful to our event chairs and committee members for their efforts to plan and execute such a wonderful event.”
