Edward Foundation raises record $521,000 at 21st Annual Gala

A record $521,000 was raised at the Edward Foundation’s recent 21st annual Gala, The Big Gig: Untamed Adventure. Nearly 700 people attended the event at Bobak’s Signature Events in Woodridge on Saturday, October 15. Proceeds from the Gala will, in part, go to Edward's KidsCare Campaign which is supporting the complete renovation of Edward’s newborn and pediatric critical care areas, special procedure rooms, and construction and operation of the Ronald McDonald Family Room, scheduled to open in 2012. The Foundation has raised $26.5 million since 1990 to benefit numerous departments and programs at Edward Hospital. The Foundation also raises funds through an annual summer golf outing. To make a donation to or for more information about the Foundation, call (630) 527-3954 or visit www.edward.org/foundation.
