Annual Gala Celebration


Thanks to a host of generous sponsors, The Annual Gala Celebration will be held on Saturday, June 21, 2014.

The announcement of our Pardee Healthcare Philanthropist of the Year always promises to be a highlight of the evening. Pardee Foundation established the annual Healthcare Philanthropy Award to honor a donor who has provided long-term gifts and who volunteers time to Pardee Hospital and the Foundation as well as other healthcare organizations in our community. Recipients of this prestigious award are community leaders who selflessly advocate for healthcare philanthropy and inspire giving in Henderson County.

Last year Pardee Foundation established a Physician of the Year award. This award is presented annually to recognize a physician at Pardee Hospital whose career has been defined by medical excellence, dedication to compassionate patient care, and a commitment to improving the lives of countless hundreds of people throughout the community. The award seeks to identify and recognize multi-accomplished physicians who have enriched the field of medicine and who have demonstrated a love of the profession of medicine.
