Havana Nights 2016 LMH Foundation Gala

A Night to Remember

On November 19th, the La Grange Memorial Hospital Foundation hosted its Havana Nights gala. Sponsors, physicians, nurses, administrators and community members gathered at the Chicago Hilton Oak Brook Resort in support of AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center, La Grange.

Going Out in Style

Gala Co-Chairs Dr. Eric and Shirley Yang, and Peter and Lori O'Connor, welcomed guests and thanked all attending for their generous support. The 2016 Gala capped Foundation campaign activities that have generated over $2 million in commitments for the AMITA Health Cancer Institute & Outpatient Center, and the new Emergency Department at La Grange Medical Center.

Cuban Flare Welcome

Many in attendance took advantage of the Havana Nights theme to showcase their own special brand of Cuban style. Linen jackets, floral prints, fedoras and bright colors adorned many of the event's guests. Helping to set the tone was a classic '57 Chevy Bel Air convertible.

CEO Mike Goebel took the opportunity to highlight La Grange Medical Center's many quality care accolades this year. This included the recent awarding of a 5-Star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services - the highest score possible, awarded to less than 2% of hospitals nationwide.

Dust Off Your Dancing Shoes!

Following dinner, gala guests hit the dance floor to celebrate in style. Local sensation Maggie Speaks provided live entertainment, covering a wide range of classic and current dance favorites.
