Adventist Health Glendale Foundation Gala

A record 630 guests were captivated by honorees’ stories of overcoming life’s challenges at Adventist Health Glendale Foundation’s Gala at the InterContinental Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Co-chairs Amanda Dundee and Dr. Anthony Cardillo, joined by Foundation chair Annette Ermshar, presided over the gala, which featured the Foundation’s first Lifetime Legacy Award to Sam and Grace Carvajal. Physician Hero 2018 honors went to neurologist Dr. Lance Lee. The evening’s fund-a-need supported acquisition of the latest 3-D mammography system, able to detect cancer at an earlier stage. “The theme of the gala was ‘Dream,’ and the generosity of our donors and friends turned our dreams into reality,” said Foundation President Irene Bourdon. “The addition of this advanced breast imaging tool is a lifesaving gift to the community.”
