All are welcome to enjoy an evening of creativity and celebration as we CONNECT THE DOTS at HGB's 5th Annual Gala. The hospital fundraising event puts the emphasis on fun and informality. We will also be celebrating the fifth anniversary of the opening of AL!VE.
Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased in advance purchased in advance.
This year’s theme is inspired by the Herman Melville quote, "We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us; and among those fibers our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects."
HGB’s Development Council has planned an evening of memorable experiences, including an interactive silent auction, a 50/50 raffle, heavy appetizers, a cash bar and entertainment. Live music will range from Donny Brown and the Van Dell Tones to the acoustic music of Brandon McCoy and his special guests. There will an artist painting, hoop dancers and special celebrations in recognition of the five-year anniversary of AL!VE’s opening. There will also be opportunities to experience virtual reality with Vincent Brady, nocturnal photographer.
This year’s silent auction includes experience-themed items such as a stay at the Florida home featured in the movie Marley and Me, a Bell’s Brewery tour followed by tickets to a live performance by Jeff Daniels, an overnight party in the GROW treehouse at AL!VE, a girls’ day at a lake, a framed photograph of the Mackinaw Bridge with the Milky Way above, and many more. Attendees will again have the option to use their smart phones to view and bid on auction items, or to bid through an auction kiosk at the event.
We are once again proud to extend our appreciation to MSU Federal Credit Union, our presenting sponsor.
New sponsors this year include Platinum Sponsor Advanced Radiology Services, PC, and Gold Sponsor EPMG (Emergency Physicians Medical Group).
