Starlight Gala

Gala decor


The Starlight Gala is Richmond Hospital Foundation's signature black tie gala and the most prestigious fundraiser in the city.  With an attendance of close to 500 guests, the Starlight Gala raised nearly half a million dollars in 2016 - and more than $5 million since its inception.  We are very excited to announce that The Tenors will be returning for another fantastic performance to help raise funds for health care. The 2017 Leadership Award will also be presented during this special evening.  Thank you very much to all of our supportive sponsors who made this evening possible. 

Join us for an inspirational evening on Saturday, October 14th, 2017, and help us celebrate and continue to raise the much needed funds to enable our health care professionals to provide the best care close to home.
