Hospitality 2019 - We Can Be Super Heroes: Celebrating the Hero in Us All

01-09-2019

Bozeman Health Foundation is excited to announce this year’s theme for its 19th Annual Hospitality dinner and auction: We Can Be Super Heroes: Celebrating the Hero in Us All.

One of Bozeman’s largest and most successful charity events, typically raising more than $500,000 Hospitality 2019 will feature décor, music, entertainment, and a menu inspired by superheroes. Proceeds from the evening will support the new Neonatal Intensive Unit (NICU) at Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital that is part of the Critical and Intensive Care pillar of the Caring Forward Campaign. Caring Forward continues through the end of 2019 and has already raised $14.2 million of the $15 million goal.

With more than 1,100 babies delivered at Deaconess Hospital every year, and a rising number of neonatal intensive care cases proportional to our growing population, our community’s need for a NICU could not be more pressing. As part of the new Women’s’ and Children’s care tower at Deaconess Hospital, the NICU will meet the healthcare needs of our most fragile patients by providing a specialized space for complex neonatal evaluation and treatment. Planned to be a Level III NICU it will offer a specialized pharmacy and respiratory staff, with essential medical equipment for babies born prematurely and those needing extra care due to complicated births or diagnoses. The Level III NICU is anticipated to open in late 2020 as part of the Women’s and Children’s care tower.

Hospitality 2019: We Can Be Super Heroes will take place on April 27, 2019, from 6 to 11 p.m. in the ballrooms at Montana State University’s Strand Union Building. The evening will feature a gourmet catered dinner, one-of-a-kind silent, and live auction items, music, and dancing. Costumes featuring your favorite superhero are encouraged, or business attire is suggested.

Tickets for the super-amazing evening to benefit the new NICU at Deaconess Hospital are $150, and typically sell out weeks in advance. Call the Bozeman Health Foundation at 406-414-1085 to purchase tickets. Early reservations are encouraged.
