North Coast Health's main fundraising event set for Aug. 28

North Coast Health’s signature annual fundraising gala, Celebration of Caring, will be held on Thursday, Aug. 28, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at LaCentre in Westlake.

The evening will feature a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, dinner and dessert, awards presentation, a live auction and raffles. Honorary chairs for the event are Chris and Sandy Haas. Event co-chairs are Wendy Kieding, Kathe Serbin, and Carol Sterba. The evening’s goal is to raise $150,000, more than 10 percent of NCH’s annual operating budget, to continue to provide life-saving health care to the medically underserved in our community.

Despite the many changes transforming our nation’s health care system, the need for our services continues. There are still families having to make the choice between paying their utilities and buying medications they need. Without North Coast Health, most would not have access to a provider of medical care. 

The winning ticket for North Coast Health’s summer vacation raffle will be drawn at the gala. The winner can choose between a 7-night, all-inclusive package including airfare to the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, or a 4-night golfing package at The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess including rounds of golf, airfare and rental car. The winner may also select a $3,500 travel voucher to Independence Travel in lieu of the above prizes.

Raffle tickets and event tickets for the Celebration of Caring gala are available online at or by phoning 216-228-7878, ext. 114. Event tickets are $125 each; raffle tickets are one for $25, three for $50 or eight for $100.
