Coronado Hospital Foundation's 31st Annual Gala- A Swingin' Affair- A Night with the Rat Pack


On Saturday, May 12, 2018 Coronado Hospital Foundation celebrated its 31st Annual Gala with a theme of "A Swingin' Affair, an Evening with the Rat Pack" at the Hotel del Coronado. The evening began with a silent auction reception and continued in the Crown Room with dinner, dancing to the musical styling's of the Rat Pack Tribute band and The Martini's, live auction and a video featuring leadership and community members who have played a vital role in the growth of Sharp Coronado Hospital.

The gala was one of the most successful events in the Foundation's history, raising more than $350,000 through sponsorships, donations, opportunity drawing ticket sales, the live and silent auctions.

We are pleased to report, proceeds from the gala completed the funding needed for the da Vinci X robot! The da Vinci robot has been optimized for focused general, gynecological and urologic surgeries. The technology offers multiple patient benefits. Among them are fewer complications, reduced blood loss and risk of infections, tiny incisions that result in significantly less scarring and pain, and shorter recovery times.

We are truly grateful to the Title Sponsors the Auen Foundation, Ron and Sherrie Auen, the Sharp Coronado Hospital Medical Staff and countless donors. The event would not be possible without the dedication of volunteers, the gala committee and co-chairs.

Holly and Joseph Jankiewicz, M.D.
