Spirit Gala 2014

Black and White Ball

The Annual Spirit Gala benefitting the St. James Healthcare Cancer Center Expansion Project has been scheduled for Saturday, March 22, 2014 at the Butte Civic Center. 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.

Thank You to Our 2014 Sponsors!

About the Foundation

St. James Healthcare Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization, was formed in 2003. The Foundation operates to address three main purposes:

  1. To raise funds to augment capital purchases and program development at St. James Healthcare.
  2. To provide direct assistance to individuals and organizations in Butte and surrounding communities in relation to health care and healthy living.
  3. To conduct outreach and awareness activities to maintain St. James and its Foundation as visible community partners in improving the living experience of local citizens and visitors. 

St. James Healthcare covers the administrative costs of the Foundation so 100% of employee and community contributions go directly toward helping people in need.For more information about supporting quality health care in our community, contact the St. James Healthcare Foundation at 406-782-5670, email us at foundation@sjh-mt.org or visit us at 425 Porphyry Street.
