Sierra View Foundation holds black tie gala
13th annual event on Sept. 28 will raise money for more sophisticated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at Sierra View District Hospital
PORTERVILLE – By looking your best you could help local doctors get their best look at diagnosing joint and tissue damage in their patients.
All locals with a passion for their community and the future of healthcare are invited to attend Sierra View Foundation’s black tie event in Porterville on Sept. 28, 2019. All proceeds for the 13th Annual Gala will support the funding for a much needed advanced and more sophisticated Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner, the Siemens Magnetom Aera that will help progress Sierra View Medical Center’s Imaging Services and have a direct impact in patient care.
“This year, the theme of our gala is Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams and we are having so much fun planning for this lavish event!” said Debbie Landers, Sierra View Foundation Chair. “In addition to the glam and fun, our underlying goal is to help raise money for a new MRI machine that will provide patients with higher resolution imaging, faster acquisition times and exceptional image quality right here at Sierra View Medical Center.”
Siemens Magnetom Aera MRI offers a shorter length, yet wider chamber allowing for more headout exams and more room to accommodate patients of all sizes. The unit offers enhanced image quality that is rendered more consistently allowing for exams that are 20% shorter, increases staff productivity by 50%, and makes the scans applicable to more specialties. In addition to traditional MRIs, which can help decipher joint problems and tumors, the Magnetom Aera offers non-invasive liver imaging, as well as prescreenings for heart attack risk.
Other than bubbly and socializing, the night’s entertainment includes a live band, the PIMs (People in the Moment) and a live auction where the best bidders will win weekend getaways, luxurious experiences for their taste buds, a night on the town with limo service and dinner included and other adventures within driving distance. The evening’s auction will be led by a favorite duo, Tulare County Sheriff, Mike Boudreaux and emceed by District Supervisor, Dennis Townsend.
A gala is not complete without exceptional food; and not just any food, local cuisine from Fugazzis, a Central Valley favorite that will soon open a new restaurant location in downtown Porterville, as well as a decadent dessert provided by our very own Stafford’s Chocolates.
The Sierra View Foundation is excited to share an evening of Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams with community members who share the same vision and want to invest in the future of their local healthcare.
