2016 Annual Benefit Gala Recap

The 61st Annual Benefit Gala, Kaleidoscope, was held on October 22, 2016. The event was a huge success, breaking fundraising records by raising nearly $1 million to benefit the Patient Care Fund at Swedish Covenant Hospital. The Patient Care Fund was created to support employee-driven creative solutions to enhance the overall patient experience at Swedish Covenant Hospital. Attended by almost 900 guests including hospital physicians and community leaders, the gala was an evening of dining, celebration and entertainment complete with fabulous silent auction packages.

Thank you to all of our supporters – Chairs Mark & Karen Newton, and Co-Chairs Dr. Kavita Singh & Ron Chadha, the gala committee, Event Host Dina Bair, WGN News, gala sponsors, guests, and volunteers – for making the 2016 gala a huge success.
