Top Hat 25th Silver Anniversary Receives Record Support

November 08, 2011

Event Proceeds Will Benefit the Sandy Amos, RN Infusion Center at Washington Hospital

The Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation’s 25th Silver Anniversary Top Hat Dinner Dance took place on Saturday, October 8 and raised more than $194,000 to support the new Sandy Amos, R.N. Infusion Center at Washington Hospital.

“I would like to sincerely thank our sponsors and attendees who came out to support this cause,” said Demetrious Shaffer, President of the Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation. “Since the Foundation’s first Top Hat event in 1986, we have contributed more than $1.6 million to benefit patients at Washington Hospital.”

Located on the second floor of Washington West, the new infusion center will offer a comfortable venue for patients who require frequent infusion therapy. Instead of traveling out of the area or being admitted to the hospital for treatment, patients will now have the option to receive their therapy close to home, in a peaceful and tranquil setting.

A record 700 guests attended the gala, which took place under a beautiful tent on the grounds of Washington West. Dinner featured surprise operatic performances by The Singing Waiters.  After dinner, guests danced until midnight to the sounds of the ever popular Joe Sharino Band.

Special thanks to Anniversary Sponsor, Janice Futch-Claridge, and Benefactor-level sponsors Fremont Orthopedic & Rehabilitative Medicine (FORM); Fremont Bank; Northern California Anesthesia Associates and Professional Home Care Associates.

Thank you to Dr. Carmen Agcaoili and Dr. Dianne Martin, for chairing Top Hat XXV and to all the committee members who worked so hard to make Top Hat XXV a special event and celebrate 25 years of giving back to Washington Hospital.

Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation would like to extend a warm thank you to Top Hat XXV Sponsors:
