35th Annual Summer Gala
The 35th Annual Summer Gala for Saratoga Hospital held on August 2nd
More than 1,080 people attended the summer event, enjoying this year’s theme of “Adirondack Summer.”
The annual gala is a major source of support for Saratoga Community Health Center, which provides primary care, dental and behavioral health services to the Saratoga community, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. This year, the center added Addiction Medicine services to address escalating needs in the region. Of the total raised, $321,184 will be directed to the health center.
