Inaugurated in the spring of 2015, the St. Martin’s Healthcare Board organized a new event, the Passport Gala. This travel and adventure-themed affair features the chance for all attendees to win an all-expenses paid Get-Away to one of three destinations. Other activities offered during this spring event include a silent auction of experienced-themed trunks filled with items and gift certificates donated by the community, and other fun giving opportunities. Heavy appetizers, dessert, and limited complimentary wine or beer are served to enhance the party atmosphere.
Held at the Country Heritage Winery in 2015 and 2016, Sylvan Cellars Centers became the new host in 2017. Annually, the regular and VIP tickets go on sale in March for the April event. Funds raised from the Passport Gala support the work of St. Martin’s Healthcare so that we can provide medical, dental, vision, and health education to the uninsured and under-insured in DeKalb and Noble counties.
