CAMC Foundation Gala
April 22, 2017

FoundationGalaArtSM.jpgEach April, the CAMC Foundation holds its annual Gala to support CAMC Women and Children's Hospital. The CAMC Foundation Gala plays a significant role in providing funds to deliver healthcare to the roughly 70% indigent children and families cared for at CAMC Women and Children's.

The goal of the CAMC Foundation Gala is to raise much needed funds to sustain a positive and healing presence in West Virginia. Outside of the community support received each year at this event, there is no other funding to address this important void in our community.

With nearly 3,000 babies born each year at CAMC Women and Children's Hospital, we are asking you to support our neediest patients and show your dedication to the mission of providing quality care for this, and future, generations.
