5th Annual Casino Royale Gala Raises $245,860 for Baptist Health Care Foundation

Senior leaders at Casino Royale

PENSACOLA, Fla. (April 25, 2018) – Baptist Health Care Foundation’s 5th Annual Casino Royale gala raised more than $245,000. Proceeds from the annual black-tie, invitation-only event are used to support programs and services at Baptist Health Care. Last year’s gala raised money to support the renovations and remodeling of the Baptist Cancer Institute’s Infusion Center.

Proceeds from this year’s event are designated to support the upcoming renovations to Baptist Hospital's progressive care unit (PCU). The PCU specializes in treating medical and surgical patients whose needs are not serious enough for the intensive care unit (ICU) but too complex for the regular hospital floor.

“We are incredibly humbled at the support of our community that helps make this event such a huge success,” says KC Gartman, executive director, Baptist Health Care Foundation. “As the area’s only not-for-profit, locally owned health care system, we play a vital role in the community’s overall health and wellness. We are proud to continue to support our Mission in helping people throughout life’s journey.”
