An Enchanted Evening 14th Annual Fall Gala


The Orange Coast Medical Center Foundation welcomed over 250 guests to the Balboa Bay Resort for its 14th Annual Fall Gala on Saturday, October 15th.  The "Enchanted Evening" was filled with lively games, auctions, fine dining and dancing.  The event raised over $280,000 in support of the hospital's new Emergency Pavilion. 

The evening's program included a video that shared the emotional story of Orange Coast Medical Center patient Lauren Speegle, a young mother who battled cancer and triumphantly survived.  Retiring Chief Nursing Officer, Dale Vital, was also recognized for her 28 years of service.  Guests generously made gifts to name one of the two nurses' stations in new Emergency Pavilion in her honor.
