Bombay Dreamy, Marin General Hospital Foundation’s annual black-tie gala, was held on Saturday, May 16, 2015 in an exquisite tented venue in downtown Sausalito. Gala Chairs, Nancy and Skip Kniesche welcomed nearly 650 guests who enjoyed an elegant dinner prepared by McCall’s Catering and danced to the music of Mixx Company. Gross proceeds of approximately $830,000 were raised for Marin General Hospital’s Marin Cancer Institute.
The evening included special acknowledgement of Mike Stone and Joe Abrams, Capital Campaign Co-Chairs, who have stepped forward to lead our fundraising effort for a new hospital. Their leadership team, including Dr. Patrick Bennett; Lee Domanico, Chief Executive Officer; Sharon Early; Jon Friedenberg, Chief Administrative Officer; Susan Gilardi; Andrea Schultz; Dr. David Sperling; and Dr. Brian Strunk, was also honored for their dedication to meet new goals for Marin County.
Marin Cancer Institute is the North Bay’s premier destination for cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and recovery, with specialized expertise in many cancer types including breast, prostate and colon. MCI’s comprehensive program integrates advanced treatments and technology with supportive services and holistic complementary care through our Center for Integrative Health & Wellness.
“To earn this Gold level designation is a testament to the outstanding care and teamwork by the staff and physicians at Marin Cancer Institute,” says Lloyd Miyawaki, MD, MPH. “It demonstrates that right here in Marin County, at Marin General Hospital, we are providing a level of care and expertise on par with that of the finest hospitals in the country.”
