Gala 2019: Black Tie, Bourbon & Bluegrass

Mandolin

Owensboro Health Foundation’s Gala is an annual black-tie optional event supporting health and wellness programs and services provided to some of the most vulnerable people in our region. Last year, 596 individuals attended the event which grossed over $259,000. Gala 2019 is called Black Tie Bourbon and Bluegrass and will be a celebration of Kentucky. There will be traditional Kentucky hors d’oeuvres, bourbon tasting, Bluegrass performance, and gourmet dinner. The event also features a large silent and live auction, as well as after-dinner entertainment from The 12 South Band. Two individuals will be named the 2019 Community Service Honoree and the Distinguished Physician Honoree. Owensboro Health Foundation will also pay a special memorial tribute to C. Waitman Taylor, Jr. for his years of vision and service as Executive Director.
