The Glamourous 1960's 2015
Hospitality 2015 Raises Record Breaking Support for Great Healthcare
More than 490 friends and supporters of great local healthcare gathered
on Saturday, April 25th at MSU’s newly renovated SUB ballrooms for
the Bozeman Health Foundation’s Hospitality 2015 dinner and auction.
The event, which celebrated “the glamorous 1960s in the Big Apple,”
raised more than $335,000 to expand Bozeman Health’s telemedicine programs.
Against a Manhattan skyline, guests looked great in period attire that
channeled Audrey Hepburn, Andy Warhol, Don Draper, Jackie Onassis, peace
lovers visiting from the Bay Area, energetic Pan Am flight crews, and
more. The silent auction, with many of its more than 100 items having
been donated by Bozeman Deaconess staff, was a huge hit with the record
crowd. Thanks to $50,000 in matching contributions from Intercity Radiology,
Absaroka Emergency Physicians and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana,
the Live Drive portion of the evening alone raised more than $150,000
in new charitable contributions. The Bozeman Health Foundation is extremely
grateful to the entire employee community, and particularly to the Rockettes
auction committee, for the extraordinary amount of time, talent and treasure
that was offered through this event.
