Special Events

During the year, the St. James Foundation hosts fundraising events and events to help raise public awareness about the Foundation and the work it does.  These include Freedom Fest every July 3rd in Chester Steele Park, the Spirit Gala in March, and the Ticker Tuner Fun Run/Walk in August. Following is information on these events in 2013.

Spirit Gala

The Annual Spirit Gala benefitting the St. James Healthcare Cancer Center Expansion Project has been scheduled for Saturday, March 22, 2014. Thanks to all of the sponsors and guests’ support last year, we were able to purchase much needed equipment and treatment chairs for the Cancer Center.  

Because of the large demand for cancer services in our community, we have simply run out of room. To provide the best possible care close to home, we are raising funds for the Cancer Center Expansion Project, which will be unveiled at this year’s Gala. The end result of our capital campaign will be increased floor space, allowing for three additional treatment areas plus a private treatment room for our extremely sick patients. All proceeds from the Gala will be used toward these efforts.

We're currently seeking Foundation Champions to sponsor this year’s Spirit Gala: The Black & White Ball. The event will showcase a decadent menu, fine wine, entertainment, and a silent and live auction.   Individual tickets to the Black and White Ball are $100/person and includes hors d’oeuvres, dinner, dessert, and two drink tickets.

We hope that you can help us provide greater access for our patients so they may get their care close to home.  If you have any questions or need additional information, please call Elaine at (406)782-5670.  We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Ticker Tuner Fun Run/Walk

In August, the St. James Foundation hosts the Ticker Tuner, a 5 and 10 K run/walk and a 1 mile walk.  The proceeds from the event are used to purchase equipment for the Cardiac Rehab Department and to provide community-wide heart health education and programs.  The 2013 Ticker Tuner will be held on August 24.  Download a registration form here. 

Freedom Fest

Join us on July 3rd in Chester Steele Park for a fun-filled evening of music, food and fireworks!  In addition to St. James Healthcare and the St. James Healthcare Foundation, sponsors of Freedom Fest this year include Montana Interventional and Diagnostic Radiology, the Montana Standard, and Guy and Madeline Ossello! 

On July 3rd each year, the St. James Foundation hosts Freedom Fest in Chester Steele Park.  With food vendors providing great picnic fare and the Butte Community Band and other band providing entertainment, families and friends gather to await the beautiful fireworks display.
