Children’s Gala Breaks Record with Sellout Attendance, More Than $1 Million Raised
The 2018 Children’s Hospital & Medical Center’s “Imagine” Gala was a record-breaking event, raising more than $1 million to further innovation and expansion at Children’s.
Funds raised will support the construction of the Hubbard Center for Children, a transformational expansion project that will help Children’s accommodate growing demand for services through the construction of a 9-floor clinical facility addition.
A sellout crowd of more than 1,500 people attended the Nov. 3 Gala at CHI Health Center Center Omaha where they enjoyed silent and live auctions, a raffle, dinner and entertainment by critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Mat Kearney.
Honorary chairs were Paula and James Blackledge. Fatima Basith and Suellen Willett served as the Gala’s co-chairs. Debbie Wood is the current president of the Friends Board, which plans the Gala along with Children’s Foundation staff.
