Bozeman Health Foundation will celebrate 25 years of impact at its annual Hospitality Gala on April 29. The event will be held in Montana State University’s SUB ballrooms beginning at 6 p.m. The “Silver Celebration” will bring an evening full of excitement, entertainment and – most importantly – fundraising in support of Bozeman Health patients.
Proceeds from the gala will launch the Bozeman Health Foundation Well Beyond Care Fund. Patient support from the Well Beyond Care Fund will help to remove health care barriers and provide services and other needs that are not covered by private insurance or Medicare and Medicaid insurance programs for needs such as transportation assistance to appointments, lodging for patients who travel long distances for treatment, medical equipment and special nutritional items.
The Hospitality gala is one of Bozeman’s largest annual charity events, with more than 500 community members and business leaders attending. The inaugural event was held in 2001 and has, over the span of 22 years, raised more than $5 million to support Bozeman Health care and specialty services expansion, capital projects, specialized equipment and promoting innovation and excellence.
This year’s black-tie event will be held in-person, the first time since 2019, and will feature a plated dinner, a signature 25-year anniversary signature silver cocktail, silent and live auctions, a live-drive match for cash donations and surprise entertainment. The public is encouraged to wear their best silver.
Tickets and tables are available for purchase online at bhf.givesmart.com, a giving platform where guests can also browse and bid on auction items prior to the event and participate in other ways. Individual tickets to the gala are $150 each and tables seating up to 10 guests can be reserved for $1,500.
