Grossmont Hospital Foundation

Grossmont Hospital Foundation 34th Annual Gala
What began as a "Fall Roundup" more than three decades ago has evolved into the community's largest celebration in support of Sharp Grossmont Hospital. More than 500 physicians, prominent community and business leaders, donors and corporate sponsors enjoy an evening of live and silent auctions, dining, entertainment and dancing in support of East County’s only not-for-profit hospital.

Our 34th Annual Gala will benefit the David and Donna Long Center for Cancer Treatment at Sharp Grossmont Hospital. Built in 1991, the cancer center is undergoing a remodel to accommodate new technology and increase patient privacy. Gala proceeds will support these enhancements and help expand patient support services to best meet the needs of our community.

  • Cardiovascular services with the continued development and construction of the new Heart and Vascular Center
