An opportunity to dress your best, enjoy Italian food, bid on silent auction items and then hit the dance floor is back in support of your local hospital.

The Sault Area Hospital Foundation Gala is set to return in November after a four-year absence.

But don't delay if you are interested in attending. Tickets are already 60% sold out, according to the following news release from the SAHF:

After four long years, the Sault Area Hospital Foundation Gala is back! 

Join us Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Marconi Cultural Event Centre for a premier fundraising event presented by GFL (Green for Life). This special evening only happens once every two years, so you don’t want to miss out! 

Inspired by fabulous galas past, this grand event will feature a subtle nod the Marconi’s Italian roots: think negroni, genetti, limencello and Frank Sinatra standards.

Black tie optional, the gala will include a cocktail reception followed by a gourmet meal, and then both a silent and live auction with incredible items up for grabs.

Once the bidding is done, James Case and the Aces will have you dancing the night away to big band favourites during the scotch tasting after-party. 

“After a long four-year hiatus, we are ready to come together and enjoy an evening of fellowship and philanthropy,” said Teresa Martone, executive director of the Sault Area Hospital Foundation. “Proceeds from this special night will support the Algoma District Cancer Program at Sault Area Hospital.” 

Gala tickets are limited as the event is already 60% sold out. Tickets are $200 per person, with a partial charitable tax receipt. Reserve your table now online at or by calling 705-759-3848
