URMC / Golisano Children's Hospital / Giving / Attend an Event / Hospital Gala / About the Gala About the Gala The Golisano Children's Hospital Gala is the children's hospital's premier fundraising event. For three decades, hundreds of children's hospital advocates have gathered under one roof to celebrate the wonderful work being done for our region's sick and injured children and to show their continuous support of advancing patient care into the future. Always a different theme and complete with a cocktail hour, silent and live auction, dancing, and more, the Gala is a night to remember. Last year's event, sponsored by The Cabot Group for the eighth consecutive year, raised $750,000 for the Finger Lakes region’s only children’s hospital.
