Adventist Health Grants Wishes at Foundation Gala

The Adventist Health Foundation’s Gala took place recently at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE, where nearly 600 guests came together and raised more than $1.1 million to fund new life-saving equipment for Adventist Health Glendale. Co-chairs Amanda Dundee and Dr. Harlan Gibbs, joined by hospital President Alice Issai and foundation chair Helen McDonagh, presided over the evening’s festivities. Additional highlights featured a presentation by grateful patients of the foundation’s 2019 Physician Hero Award to radiation oncologist Dr. Sara Kim, and a heartfelt tribute honoring the late Orfi Barros, celebrating her gift of a remodeled chapel to the medical center. “The generosity of our guests made our wishes come true,” said Foundation President Irene Bourdon.
