Eisenhower Auxiliary’s Five Star Gala

Eisenhower Medical Center Auxiliary’s annual fund-raising dinner dance is scheduled for Saturday, December 7 at 6 p.m. at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage.

Meet the residents and celebrate Eisenhower’s commitment to elevating medical diagnostics to the digital era. Proceeds will be directed to the acquisition of state-of-the-art hand-held ultrasound devices and other diagnostic equipment for Eisenhower’s inaugural class of residents and faculty in the School of Graduate Medical Education.

The hosted reception will be followed by dinner and dancing with the Wayne Foster Music and Entertainment singers, dancers and musicians — providing a continuous interactive atmosphere of musical entertainment. Valet parking will be complimentary and dress is black-tie optional.

The event has the generous support of Eisenhower Medical Center benefactors Jim Houston and Harold Matzner, as well as members of the Gala Host Committee, including Richard and Aliede Bennett; Helene Galen; Harry and Joy Goldstein; Charles B. Gouert, Jr.; Larry and Barbara Hatfield; Arthur and Deborah Jacobson; John and Anne Marion; JoAnn McGrath; Mrs. Charles H. Price, II; Greg and Stacey Renker; Harry and Diane Rinker; Robert and Karen Rishwain; and Al and Sally Shoemaker.

The ticket price for the 2013 Gala with a Cause is $300. For more information, please call Teresa Hurtig at 760-773-1810 or visit emc.org/gala.
