“Round up the usual suspects.” – Captain Renault
This year we celebrated the 75th anniversary of Casablanca. The event was held at the beautiful Towa Golf Resort at Buffalo Thunder and we want to thank everyone who participated for making the 2018 St. Vincent Hospital Foundation Gala a huge success!
Over $360,000 was raised thanks to our gracious sponsors and all of our amazing guests!
The evening started with a cocktail reception which featured an exclusive Silent Auction and, back by popular demand, the Wine & Whiskey Draw. During the dinner program we once again celebrated our exceptional hospital community and the incredible work that they do every day to nurture a healthy New Mexico. The Caretaker of the Year award was presented to Geri Vigil-Bartels, CNP and the Service Recognition Award was given to Joan Wilson, for the Interpreter on Wheels program.
Following the gala program our guests attended the After Party at “Rick’s Café Américain”, enjoying a lively Dueling Piano Bar where they sang along with the talents of renowned pianists Robin Holloway & David Geist!
The proceeds from the 2018 St. Vincent Hospital Foundation Gala will benefit Santa Fe and northern New Mexico by providing in-depth Behavioral Health Services at CHRISTUS St. Vincent (CSV). Behavioral Health is in the spotlight nationwide and CSV intends to lead the charge in New Mexico and set the standard for providing these essential services to our community.
