Societies: How We Say Thank You
At the WakeMed Foundation, our supporters are many, including individuals, families, large and small businesses, even other foundations and organizations. Through our Donor Recognition Program, we proudly recognize them for their interest and investment in WakeMed Health & Hospitals. We are extremely grateful for their time, talents and financial support.
Each year, a recognitiion gala is held to honor those that have donated more than $1,350 during the year to the WakeMed Foundation. Some of the past featured guests have included people like Gladys Knight, Jay Leno, Ken Burns, Cal Ripken, Jr. and Tom Brokaw. It is an evening of celebration, to appropriately recognize the contributions of our supporters and the difference they have made throughout the year.
The 2014 Foundation Appreciation Gala featured performances by RAIN - A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES - and was held at the Raleigh Convention Center on November 15. Stay tuned for more information about the 2015 Gala.
