Some of the highlights of the evening included the opening dialogue between Executive Director Kim Hinkleman and Dane Whitlock (a.k.a. Poseidon), and of course, the presentations of Physician and Philanthropist of the year. Dr. Betsy Merrell was named  Pardee Hospital’s Physician of the Year and Carol Adams was recognized as  Philanthropist of the Year.

It wasn’t long before the band kicked in and the dancing began and didn’t end until 11pm. When all was said and done, the event raised $132,376 in funding to benefit Pardee Hospital’s rapidly expanding cardiovascular program.

Many thank to our Gala Sponsors!

Thanks to these generous sponsors, our gala was once again a great success.
