The AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation invites the community to “Experience Heroes of the Red, White and Blue” at its 2019 Annual Gala. This year’s AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation Gala will take place on Thursday, May 9, at 5:30 pm at Signature Flight Support - Asheville Regional Airport.
The military setting will be an elegant evening honoring our nation’s military heroes complete with gourmet dishes, silent and live auctions, and exciting entertainment. Dress in black tie and cocktail attire or if you are military personnel you are welcome to come dressed in uniform.
The program will feature the presentation of the Dr. P.J. Moore, Jr. & Dr. Arthur A. Pearson Award of Excellence to Jeff Miller and Blue Ridge Honor Flight (BRHF). This year, we have partnered with BRHF to have a “Fund-a-Vet” opportunity that evening. During this time, guests will have the opportunity to make a donation to sponsor veterans on their flight to Washington, D.C. to see the war memorials.
The proceeds from this year’s Gala ticket sales will help fund a Behavioral Health Pod in the AdventHealth Hendersonville Emergency Department. The ER is often where behavioral health patients receive their first care at AdventHealth. This Behavioral Health Pod will feature five specially designed patient rooms to accommodate patients experiencing mental health issues. Having these rooms available for people coming in with acute behavioral health needs, allows our care teams to bring patients into a setting that is safe and comforting for their physical and mental health needs.
Various sponsorship levels are available for the “Experience Heroes of the Red, White and Blue” Gala for those interested in showcasing their business and generosity to health and wellness in our community.
The Gala includes a chance drawing for a trip to Washington, D.C. The winner will receive two, round-trip coach airline tickets with departure from a nearby airport and a five-night, double occupancy stay in Washington, D.C. A single chance drawing ticket purchase is $25, or you may purchase five tickets for $100 at AdventHealthGALA.com.
To purchase event tickets, tickets for the chance drawing for the trip to Washington, D.C., sponsor a veteran for an Honor Flight, or to inquire about a sponsorship, contact the AdventHealth Hendersonville Foundation at Call828-681-2421 or email [email protected].
