GREENWICH, Conn. – The Moulin Rouge 2016 Gala for Greenwich Hospital will take place Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Greenwich Country Club.
The event, which starts at 6 p.m., will support the hospital’s comprehensive range of diagnostic and interventional cardiac services.
“Community support of the 2016 Gala for Greenwich Hospital will make a significant difference for years to come, helping to bring expert and compassionate care, right here at home," said Norman Roth, president of Greenwich Hospital. "Our continued investment in technology, physicians, staff and clinical research, as well as our affiliation with the Yale New Haven Heart and Vascular Center, ensures that we have the greatest impact in the community.”
Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, claiming the lives of more than 600,000 Americans – that’s one in every four deaths – a year. Greenwich Hospital recognizes the importance of delivering the highest standards of cardiac care by offering a comprehensive range of specialized cardiac services, including screening, prevention, emergency care, treatment and rehabilitation programs.
As one of the few providers in the region to offer emergency angioplasty and the first health care facility in Fairfield County to earn national certification as a primary stroke center, Greenwich Hospital is an essential community resource when a few minutes could mean the difference between life and death.
Gala chairwomen Gretchen Bylow, Kim Nichols and Jennifer Seidel selected Moulin Rouge as the theme for this year’s décor. With the help of a committee of volunteers, they are planning a black tie evening of elegance and surprise that will include silent, live and fine wine auctions with lively entertainment by The Starlight Orchestra.
James Sabetta, director of infectious diseases, internal medicine and chief assistant of staff, will receive the President’s Award at the gala for his many years of service to the hospital.
Tickets to the gala are available at a variety of levels. To purchase tickets or for more information, please contact the special events team at 203-863-3865, firstname.lastname@example.org or here .
