On Tuesday, May 31st, the members of the Annual Gala committee were pleased to present a cheque for $287,780.69 to Headwaters Health Care Foundation, representing the net proceeds of Get Down & Derby, the 19th Annual Dinner and Auction in support of Headwaters Health Care Foundation held on May 7th, 2016.

The proceeds of this annual signature fundraising event goes towards the purchase of priority medical equipment.

This year’s sold out gala event held at the beautiful Hockley Valley Resort and hosted by actor Scott Finlay, featured a gourmet cocktail reception and dinner, games, live music, a wine raffle, and a fabulous live and silent auction as well as opportunities for guests to directly donate to specific hospital equipment.

“We wanted to build on the success of past galas, but at the same time offer something different that would excite our loyal attendees as well as attract new supporters. We were thrilled that our guests embraced the theme and donned their “derby best”, “said Event Chair, Jenn Conroy.

“We have had wonderful feedback and so we look forward to creating another unique experience for our 20th Anniversary next year!”

Special thanks to the event’s main sponsors: Brannon Steel, Cavalier Transportation, Ideal Supply, Enercare Home Services, The Taylor Group, Dunsmuir Ridler, James Dick Aggregates, Hockley Valley Resort & RBC.

Largely volunteer-driven, the event is organized by the Gala Committee one year in advance. Planning is already underway for next year’s event so SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, May 6th, 2017.
