    The 2018 Service to Humanity Gala

    Tesla, incredible live and silent auction items, entertaining games, and many generous donors all contributed to the great success and rave reviews of the 2018 United Hospital Foundation Service to Humanity Gala!  

    It was quite impressive seeing more than 1,400 guests gathered at the Saint Paul RiverCentre to celebrate and recognize the 2018 Community and Physician Honorees.

    This event continues to be one of the most successful philanthropy events in the Twin Cities. Through your generosity, nearly $1.5 million was raised to support the United Heart & Vascular Clinic Expansion and the future purchase of two new da Vinci Surgery Systems. 

    As part of the evening’s program, the daVinci Surgery Systems were featured as the Fund-a-Need. Watch this video to see the how important this piece of technology is for healthcare – now and in the future. 

    Your help is still needed to fund the daVinci Surgery Systems. If you’d like to contribute, please call the Foundation: 651-241-8022. 

    Congratulations, Kari!
