United Hospital Foundation events

Save the date for the 2014 Service to Humanity Gala, September 27

The Service to Humanity Gala is one of the largest fundraising event in the Twin Cities. In the metro-area funding events ranked by gross revenue, the Gala is ranked seventh of 25. Since 2003, more than $11 million has been raised to benefit programs and services of United Hospital.

During the Service to Humanity Gala, we present the Service to Humanity Award to both a community member and a physician associated with United Hospital who have demonstrated selfless dedication and exemplary leadership in improving the health and welfare of St. Paul residents and the communities we serve.

The 2013 Service to Humanity Gala raised $1.52 million to benefit the Elaine S. Larson Surgical Center Campaign.
