Gettysburg Hospital Auxiliary Spirit of Hope Gala

Saturday, March 7, 2015
Gettysburg Hotel, Est. 1797
6 to 11 p.m.

The 2015 Gettysburg Hospital Auxiliary's Spirit of Hope Gala will support WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital’s commitment to a patient-family centered environment through projects that promote hope, healing and hospitality. Initiatives include the Healing HeARTS initiative, transforming the hospital’s environment and patient-family centered experience through the healing power of the arts.

This year’s event promises to showcase the arts in many different ways, musically through the sounds of harpist Sharon Knowles, jazz by the Buzz Jones Quartet, and soul/Motown/rock from the eight piece Burning House Band; visually through unique items in the silent and live auction as well as hand-painted artwork by Canadian artist, Jeremy Borst, available for purchase and display at the WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital campus; and sensory through a gourmet meal designed personally by Chef Joseph Holmes.

Guests will have their choice of seating in the grand ballroom or a more intimate setting in the Stevens Room. The night will include a fruit and cheese reception, followed by dinner and dessert.

The menu for the event includes:

  • Mixed spring greens with vine ripened tomato and fresh mozzarella, served with balsamic vinaigrette and fried prosciutto
  • Combination plate of a fig, feta and grilled vegetable Tenderloin of Beef and a roasted pepper and herb Salmon roulade accompanied by a smoked gouda au gratin potato and vegetable bouquet
  • Assorted petite desserts
  • Garden Breeze signature drink, a light refreshing beverage consisting of Smirnoff vodka, muddled strawberries, a splash of white and red cranberry and pineapple
