50th Anniversary Celebration
Golden Valley Health Centers is pleased to invite you to the GVHC Foundation’s Making a Difference Gala!
While Golden Valley Health Centers (GVHC) proudly celebrates 50 years of service to our community, the GVHC Foundation is a relatively new 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization developed in 2015 to support the work of the Health Center.
The Foundation exists to raise awareness and support. Our mission is to provide quality primary health care services to those who need us most, regardless of their financial ability. Funds raised by the Foundation creatively resource important projects like our annual Flora R. Martinez Nursing Scholarship program for local students, the Adopt-a-Family holiday gift drive for young patients from struggling families, the CARE fund (which supplements the cost of health-related services that are not aordable for many we serve), and more.
Providing care for over 140,000 patients requires a vast amount of resources. Sponsoring the GVHC Foundation Gala is an excellent way for your business to help provide healthcare services to those in need throughout the Central Valley. Please consider the sponsorship opportunities available and partner with us to improve health outcomes in the community.
The Making a Difference Gala will be held on the evening of August 20, 2022. This exclusive event will feature a VIP reception, craft cocktails, fabulous prizes at the live and silent auction, and rousing entertainment. Please join us as we celebrate Golden Valley Health Center’s 50th Anniversary Gala. Guests are encouraged to dress in 50’s themed attire.
For additional information, please call us at 209.359.5933 or email Foundation@gvhc.org.
We look forward to a beautiful evening of Making a Difference together!
