St. Charles Foundation's 2018 Saints Gala was held at the Riverhouse Convention Center on Saturday Oct. 20. This year we honored the 100th anniversary of St. Charles with the theme "A night to shine as we celebrate a century of caring for all." The evening included a gourmet meal, live and silent auctions and a big-ticket raffle.

All proceeds from the Gala benefited the expansion at St. Charles, providing a new, state-of the-art ICU and additional patient beds that will launch the next century of care.

During the event, St. Charles Foundation and St. Charles Health System announced this year's North Star Award winner, Helenka Marcinek, MD, recognizing a physician whose work has been defined by compassionate patient care, professionalism and a commitment to improving the lives of Central Oregonians.

The Saints Gala is St. Charles Foundation's signature annual fundraising event for community members who wish to invest in quality health care for Central Oregonians. Each year proceeds go to a priority campaign, program or department as well as to supporting St. Charles Health Systems vision of Creating America's healthiest community, together.
