Gala Brings Mardi Gras to Chesapeake
The 20th Anniversary Mardi Gras Gala was recently held at the Chesapeake Conference Center. The gala has been a signature philanthropic event for nearly two decades, raising funds in support of Chesapeake Regional Healthcare. Net proceeds from the annual black-tie event provide substantial support to help fund program and equipment needs, such as the Interventional Neurology Suite, the renovation of the Emergency Department and the purchase of new furniture in the Mother/ Baby Department.
