Giving to HSS

The 2009 HSS Gala

Our Annual Gala was held on Monday, June 22, 2009 at The Waldorf=Astoria where a wonderful and elegant evening was enjoyed by all. As soon as photos from the event are available, we will publish them on this page.

Even though the Gala has passed, the Hospital also conducts an equally graceful and charming Autumn Benefit supporting HSS Medical Education. Please check back in September for information about our Autumn Benefit.
