Good Samaritan Foundation hosted its swanky Corks & Crush fundraising gala at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup. More than 440 community members attended the annual VIP event and enjoyed a gourmet dinner catered by X Group Catering and took part in wine tasting from 18 wineries.
The event raised a record-breaking $1,030,000 to support MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital in caring for patients with cardiac and vascular needs, closer to their families and support systems, when time is especially precious. The funding goes to a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room at Good Samaritan.
A hybrid OR is twice the size of a standard operating room allowing for all necessary equipment and medical teams to work with patients in the same space at the same time. This OR allows for less invasive surgeries, less radiation exposure for patients and providers, shorter recovery times, and more lives saved.
