2019 Power of Community Gala

Fifth Annual Power of Community Benefit

The Most Successful Yet!

Thanks to your participation and a Challenge Grant from an anonymous donor, this year we raised more than $700,000 – a record for Norwegian American Hospital! 

Proceeds from the 2019 Benefit and the Challenge Grant will fund renovations to our Intensive Care Unit as well as programs to address social determinants of health in the Humboldt Park community.
