31st Annual Top Hat Gala
The Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation's signature event is
Top Hat. Now in its 31st year, this highly anticipated event is a glamorous
evening of extraordinary generosity.
When: Saturday, October 14
Where: Under the Grand Tent, 2500 Mowry Ave., Fremont, CA
Black Tie Optional
This event has a long tradition of raising funds for programs that improve
patient care right here in our community. The evening will feature a hosted
cocktail reception followed by an elegant four-course dinner. After dinner
and special entertainment, guests can dance the night away or enjoy conversation
and a nightcap in the Jazz Lounge.
This year, the proceeds from Top Hat will support the Washington Radiation
Oncology Center (ROC). The ROC provides a range of radiation therapy services,
including intensity-modulated radiation therapy and image-guided radiation
therapy, to patients in a caring and compassionate atmosphere. Funds raised
from Top Hat, 2017, will be used to acquire a new linear accelerator for
the ROC, which will enable physicians to isolate a tumor more precisely
and deliver a highly-targeted dose of radiation. The result is aggressive
treatment with reduced risk to healthy tissue and critical organs. Patients
benefit by experiencing reduced recovery time, fewer side effects and/or
complications often associated with conventional radiation therapy. With
a latest-generation linear accelerator and a highly specialized, multidisciplinary
clinical team in place at the ROC, oncology patients will have access
to world-class cancer care right here in the community.
