Spring Gala


Unfortunately, due to social distancing requirements surrounding the Coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic, HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital’s Kentucky Derby Gala, originally scheduled for Saturday, May 2 has been cancelled. 

St. Joseph’s Foundation is now seeking donations to assist the hospital with its COVID-19 relief efforts. 

Please consider your needs first, but if you are compelled to donate to a local charity that is on the front lines of battling COVID-19, we respectfully ask you to consider donating to HSHS St. Joseph’s Foundation. Today, more than ever, your donation will save lives.
