Thinking Beyond

Annual Foundation Gala


This past month we celebrated a major milestone in the Beyond Health movement to redefine health care on the Central Coast with the success of our annual Celebration of Caring Foundation Gala—themed “Written in the Stars.”

Our annual Gala celebrates generosity and provides an opportunity for our community to partake in a silent auction, enjoy world-class provisions, participate in an exhilarating live auction–as well as conversate about our vision for the future of health care on the Central Coast.

Thanks to the generosity of all who attended, we were able to raise over $500,000 towards the Your New French Hospital project. This year’s call to action alone successfully raised over $62,000 towards one of the expansion’s major initiatives: a new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit that will provide critical care for our tiniest of patients.

Another highlight of the evening was the presentation of the 2019 Louis Tedone, MD Humanitarian Award—our annual opportunity to recognize those who have gone above and beyond to help progress and improve the San Luis Obispo community.  It was an honor to present the Louis Tedone, MD Humanitarian Award to Mindbody Founder & CEO, Rick Stollmeyer, and celebrate his commitment to our community.

We enjoyed the opportunity to fundraise towards the renovation of health care in San Luis Obispo County, as well as celebrate everything that the Beyond Health movement encompasses. Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make this event possible, it wouldn’t have been such a success without the participation of those involved.
