The gala will take attendees back in time with 50’s and 60’s Hollywood glam and will commemorate ConnectMed’s commitment over the past 7 years to strengthening healthcare systems where its patients live and making them sustainable. ConnectMed aims to raise $75,000 at the event. Proceeds will support ConnectMed’s medical partnerships, educational opportunities for healthcare practitioners, telemedicine, and other resources essential for ongoing care at its international partner sites.
“About 4.8 billion people are without safe, affordable surgical care,” said ConnectMed President Dr. Amanda Gosman.“Our mission is not only dedicated to direct patient care for children and young adults with physical deformities, but strengthening local healthcare systems where our patients live so they can obtain free surgeries, specialized medical team care and follow-ups from their local providers.”
An Evening in Old Hollywood will feature a hosted bar serving retro cocktails popular in the 50s and 60s, seated dinner, silent and live auctions and jazz music by The Essentials featuring Simone White. The museum will present Point/Counterpoint: Contemporary Mexican Photography, featuring work by contemporary Mexican photographers who examine themes of displacement and political, economic and social realities of modern-day Mexico.
The gala kicks off at 6:30 p.m. in Balboa Park at 1649 El Prado in San Diego.
Title sponsors of An Evening in Old Hollywood include: Object Edge, KLS Martin, John & Barbara Selby, Vangar Family Trust and Terri Nelson/Nelson Middle Years at The Children’s School. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
