Event supports Saratoga Community Health Center
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY, July 11, 2022—Saratoga Hospital will hold its 40th annual Gala Aug. 3 at The Soccer Field on the grounds of Saratoga Casino Hotel. Proceeds benefit the hospital’s Saratoga Community Health Center, which provides high-quality, affordable primary care, dental, behavioral health, and addiction medicine services.
A highlight of the summer season, The Gala is one of the Capital Region’s largest, most successful charitable fundraisers. The event is known for its enticing auction items and creative themes—this year, “Great Gatsby.” Presenting sponsors are Julie & Co. Realty LLC and Bonacio Construction Inc.
The 2022 Gala will also recognize the accomplishments of retiring President and CEO Angelo Calbone, who has helped transform Saratoga Hospital and healthcare in the region. The event is expected to draw more guests than ever, as the community turns out to express its appreciation.
The Gala routinely raises over $300,000 for the Community Health Center, which provides the preventive care and treatment that can have a dramatic, positive impact on long-term health and quality of life. The center also helps patients obtain no- or low-cost health insurance and connects them with specialty medical care and community services.
“Because of our Gala sponsors, donors and guests, hundreds of individuals and families each year have access to care that previously was not available to them,” said Dr. Renee Rodriguez-Goodmote, medical director, Saratoga Community Health Center. “Perhaps even more important, patients gain the skills that can help them take charge of their health now and for the rest of their lives.”
Live-auction items at this year’s Gala include box seats for Travers Day at Saratoga Race Course, a sunset cocktail cruise on Lake George, Christmas in Maui, weeklong vacations to St. John Island and Cape Cod, deJonghe Custom Jewelry and more. In addition, guests and remote participants can use their mobile devices to bid on an array of silent-auction items.
The Gala runs from 6 to 9 p.m.; the live auction starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $175 per person ($125 for those ages 21-35). Auction item details, tickets, mobile-bidding registration and additional event information are available at www.saratogahospitalgala.org.
