TGH Foundation’s 19th Annual Gala
It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s the TGH Foundation Gala! We invite you to channel your inner-superhero as you step back into the days of Adam West and Gotham City at “A Night to Marvel: Celebrating the Superheroes of Health Care.”
Join us, as we honor the health care providers and patients at the area’s leading medical center, Tampa General Hospital. Every sponsorship and ticket purchased for this event will have an impact on children in Tampa Bay. This year, all funds raised from “A Night to Marvel” will benefit the Tampa General Hospital Children’s Medical Center.
“A Night to Marvel” will take place on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at the Tampa Convention Center. Unlike years past, this year’s gala will feature a seated dinner and live auction. We are also introducing many new and exciting opportunities to highlight your company and provide support to the hospital at the same time.
Thank you in advance for your support of this year’s gala. With your help, we can make “A Night to Marvel” the most successful Tampa General Hospital Foundation gala to date!
We look forward to seeing you there!

18th Annual Gala
The Tampa General Hospital Foundation 18th Annual Gala, Channelside: Experience Industrial Elegance, was held on April 25, 2015 at Port Tampa Bay – Cruise Terminal 2. Guests at the exclusive Patrons’ Party preceding the Gala were treated to nothing but glamour upon entering the lobby of the terminal. Glittering chandeliers sparkled from above, while a lively jazz ensemble serenaded the crowd. Gorgeous gowns and dapper tuxes were as far as the eye could see as patrons’ enjoyed fresh farm-to-table hors d’oeuvres and expertly crafted signature cocktails.
At 7:30 sharp giant retractable doors were raised and guests were taken from “speakeasy chic” to “NYC rooftop”. With a larger than life loft feel, attendees were awed by row after row of feasting tables dripping in orchids, lilies and snapdragons, decadent dining stations, and a swanky casino lounge fit for any VIP. Guests were immediately drawn to the custom on-site gallery featuring this year’s silent auction. 44 pieces of work from Local Tampa Bay artisans were professionally displayed and up for bid. Many of the items purchased have been donated back to TGH’s public art program and will have prominent placement here at the hospital. Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Fred Hames of Skanska were kind enough to draw the winning ticket and announce the winner of this year’s $10,000 Chance Drawing. Music from Breezin’ Mixology kept the dancefloor bustling throughout the night. Their instrumental/DJ collaboration proved to be a special enticement for our 3rd Annual After-Party guests, who arrived at 9:30. Armed with blinking LED glasses, they kept the night club vibe going till the end.
This year’s gala, under the guidance of Catherine Christie-Zanghi, Heidrun Divers and Gretchen Dominguez, raised over $325,000 in net proceeds for Tampa General Hospital’s Fund for the Future. This fund helps TGH achieve its vision of being the leading medical center in West Central Florida. Contributions ensure that our dedicated physicians and patient care staff have all the necessary tools to provide excellent medical care and to advance teaching, research and service in our community.
