The French Hospital Medical Center (FHMC) Foundation announced that the Twelfth Annual Celebration of Caring Gala raised more than $373,000 to support patient programs and services at FHMC, a not-for-profit community hospital. The themed event, Haute Havana, took place August 19, 2017 at the Madonna Expo Center in SLO. The annual event’s remarkable success is due to the incredible generosity of its sponsors, contributors, and 500 registered guests. The FHMC’s Staff has been the major event sponsor for the past four years. Since 2006, the Gala has raised more than $2.5 million to support FHMC patient programs and services.
