Since our beginning 18 years ago, the WellStar Foundation Grand Gala has raised funds to support research and vital services for some of the communities’ most pressing needs. In fact, in the past four years alone, the Grand Gala has raised over $1.2 million. That’s funds raised in the community and reinvested in the community. And while the theme may change, one thing remains the same—together, we can make a difference.
2015 Grand Gala
Over 650 guests joined what was a very meaningful and fun evening of stars on Saturday, April 18.
