Tahlequah City Hospital Foundation hosting Hearts of Gold Gala

TAHLEQUAH — The Tahlequah Hospital Foundation will host the ninth annual Hearts of Gold Gala on Saturday, Feb. 15, with special guests Chera Kimiko from News on 6, The Voice’s Adley Stump and Emerald City Band. The Gala, a fundraiser to support Tahlequah City Hospital, will raise money to help absorb the cost of caring for the uninsured, provide scholarships to students pursuing a career in healthcare and help provide for the latest in technology.

Sponsored by Northeast Oklahoma Heart Center, the Gala will showcase the hospital’s growth over the last year as well as honor several individuals who have made a significant impact on healthcare in Tahlequah.

“The awards given at the Gala are a great way to recognize the people who have made such great contributions to the community through their professional and volunteer service,” said Patti Hale, Foundation board member. “We have so many local heroes in this community and it’s a perfect opportunity to recognize them.”

The three awards given are the Heart of Gold Award, recognizing volunteer Bernie Summerlin for her many hours of service to the Tahlequah City Hospital Auxiliary and the community; the McIntosh, Masters, Medearis Award, recognizing Dr. Wallace Champlain for demonstrating clinical excellence and his many years of service; and the Thompson Award, recognizing Mr. Gary Chapman for his instrumental role in Tahlequah Hospital’s healthcare history. During the event, the Foundation will also recognize the retirement of Dr. George Foster.

“I think the Gala is important for our community,” said JoAnn Bradley, of the Tahlequah Hospital Foundation. “It gives the Foundation an opportunity to help the hospital provide more than $100,000 per year in scholarships for its employees to obtain nursing and healthcare related degrees and I can’t think of a better gift then education.”

For tickets or more information on the Hearts of Gold Gala, call (918) 453-2105.
