8th Annual Gala Honors Mayor Joe Schember and County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper

January 08, 2019

Gala 2019

More than 630 guests attended the 8th Annual Hamot Health Foundation Gala on Jan. 5 at the Bayfront Convention Center. 

The 8th Annual Gala, presented by UPMC Health Plan, inspired guests to IMAGINE what our community could look like when we work together with a common vision for the future.

We were thrilled to honor two individuals who already do this with excellence — Mayor Joe Schember and County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper. It’s hard to imagine where we might be without them, and we are so grateful for the ways that they are catalyzing positive growth in our community.

That evening, it was our pleasure to announce two $3,000 scholarships in their names for two high school seniors in an Erie and Erie County school who are pursuing medical degrees at a local university. We are proud to add this to the list of ways we are supporting the next generation and the future of health care in our community.

Guests enjoyed highlights of the evening, like our inspirational program and video, imaginative décor, and extra special touches like the champagne skirts and espresso bar.
