St. Tammany Hospital Foundation Introduces THE Gala

Sponsorships Needed for New Signature Event Benefiting St. Tammany Cancer Center

COVINGTON – St. Tammany Hospital Foundation is seeking sponsorships for THE Gala presented by HUB International, a new signature event benefiting patients and families of St. Tammany Cancer Center, held on Oct. 4 at the Southern Hotel.

“Every day, St. Tammany Parish Hospital collaborates with its partners, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center and Ochsner, to provide excellent cancer care on the Northshore at St. Tammany Cancer Center. At St. Tammany Hospital Foundation, we believe it is our due diligence to raise vital funds that continue to elevate and enhance the level of care,” said Melanie Rudolph, STH Foundation specialist. “We hope that THE Gala is an electrifying experience for all those who attend and, more so, an opportunity to connect the community to the comprehensive cancer care available close to home.” 

A firm foundation to support local cancer care was built with MBPCC’s Benefits of Home gala. This year, St. Tammany Hospital Foundation invites the community to Step into the Ring at THE Gala, an evolution of Benefits of Home, and support cancer care at a new level. This new signature event will focus our resources in one healing place, St. Tammany Cancer Center, where nationally ranked leaders, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, St. Tammany Parish Hospital and Ochsner, are fighting to beat cancer.

THE Gala, held on Oct. 4 at the Southern Hotel in downtown Covington, will feature a champagne toast patron party, circus-style entertainment, high-end auctions, games, food and beverages.

There are many opportunities to be involved in THE Gala. Sponsorships range from $1,000 to $10,000, including the chance to name an event area and be included in promotional materials. Each sponsorship includes a number of individual tickets, which are $150 each.
