North Coast Health’s signature annual fundraising gala, Celebration of Caring, will be held on Thursday, August 28, 2014, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at LaCentre in Westlake.
The evening will feature a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, dinner and dessert, awards presentation, a live auction and raffles. Honorary chairs for the event are Chris and Sandy Haas. Event co-chairs are Wendy Kieding, Kathe Serbin, and Carol Sterba. Returning for a second year, Parker Hannifin Corporation is the event’s lead “Presenting” sponsor. The evening’s goal is to raise $150,000, more than 10 percent of NCH’s annual operating budget, to continue to provide life-saving health care to the medically underserved in our community.
Despite the many changes transforming our nation’s health care system, the need for our services continues. There are still families having to make the choice between paying their utilities and buying medications they need. Without North Coast Health, most would not have access to a provider of medical care.
The winning ticket for North Coast Health’s Summer Vacation raffle will be drawn at Celebration. The winner can choose between a 7-night, all-inclusive package including airfare to the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic or a 4-night golfing package at The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess including rounds of golf, airfare and rental car. The winner may also select a $3,500 travel voucher to Independence Travel in lieu of the above prizes. Raffle tickets are one for $25, three for $50 or eight for $100 and can be purchased at www.northcoasthealth.org/celebration or by calling the North Coast Health Development office at 216-228-7878 ext. 114.
