Cherokee Indian Hospital Foundation Gala

The Cherokee Indian Hospital Foundation Seventh Annual Foundation 2016 Gala at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort was a huge success! Thank you to all of the people who made this possible! In honor of the Kentucky Derby, this year’s 2017 theme was Gallop to the Gala!

In honor of the Kentucky Derby, CIHA Foundation hosted a Hat Contest during the Gallop to the Gala.

Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to invest in state-of-the-art equipment, expand and upgrade facilities, implement wellness and community benefit programs to serve the Cherokee community. All proceeds will directly benefit the new Cherokee Indian Hospital, which will expand many much-needed services, including the dental clinic, emergency room, complementary medicine, and others.

This special evening featured entertainment, dancing, and the ever popular Wine Pull. Our Silent Auction offered a wide variety of desirable items, including the arts and crafts of the Cherokee people. Music will be performed. Music will be performed by FLASHBACK- the Party Band.

Thank you for your support of the Foundation’s mission to provide continuing financial support and improve the health status of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. Only through the generosity and support of people like you can Cherokee Indian Hospital continue to thrive and improve to meet the ever-changing needs of the Cherokee community. Together we make this happen.
