24th Annual Top Hat Fundraiser is a Great Success

October 26, 2010

Event Proceeds to Support Leading Edge Technology

The Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation’s 24th annual Top Hat dinner dance took place on Saturday, October 9 and raised more than $165,000 for the bi-plane cath lab.  This advanced piece of equipment will enable our dedicated physicians to offer state-of-the-art treatment to stroke and cardiovascular patients.

"The evening was fantastic, and we supported a very worthwhile cause," said Dr. Kranthi Achanta, who chaired the event. "I am very proud that the event was able to generate so much community support for this important technological advance at Washington Hospital.”

Close to 600 guests attended the gala which for the third consecutive year took place under the grand tent on the grounds of Washington West. The event featured a hosted reception, dinner, a live auction and entertainment. After dinner, guests had the option of listening to Larry Walker Trio’s in the Anderson Auditoriums or dancing to Pride & Joy under the grand tent.
The Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation would like to extend a special thank you to Presenting Sponsor, Janice Futch-Claridge and Benefactor-level sponsors – Fremont Bank and Professional Home Care Associates.
