Fort Hamilton Hospital’s Ticket to Hollywood fundraising gala.

The Colleagues of Fort Hamilton Hospital and the Fort Hamilton Hospital Foundation invite you to attend their annual fundraising gala, Ticket to Hollywood. Happening on September 29th, 2018 held at the Courtyard by Marriott in downtown Hamilton, Ohio.

Ticket to Hollywood is a fundraising gala presented by the Colleagues of Fort Hamilton Hospital and The Fort Hamilton Foundation. Each year’s gala is themed around a blockbuster movie. This year’s theme is based on the 2001 movie, “Pearl Harbor”.

“Pearl Harbor” is based on true historical events, following American childhood friends Rafe McCawley (Ben Affleck) and Danny Walker (Josh Hartnett) as pilots entering World War 2. Rafe’s girlfriend, Evelyn (Kate Beckinsale) works as a nurse on the Homefront. The movie follows the three as they reunite in Hawaii just before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

This movie pays tribute to the medical field and big changes happening at Fort Hamilton Hospital during World War 2. This year’s gala will also feature a Hawaiian themed dinner, a silent auction, and entertainment provided by the Afterhours Little Big Band. A group of retired physicians, orthodontists, and dentists.

“These types of events help support the enhancements and improvements to Fort Hamilton Hospital.” Sonja Kranbuhl, Director of the Fort Hamilton Hospital Foundation said.

The proceeds from the previous Ticket to Hollywood galas have helped support several projects at Fort Hamilton Hospital: such as a 3D Tomosynthesis machine for higher definition mammograms, supporting the Emergency Department expansion and the remodeling of the Family Birthplace. As well as supporting orthopedic services, heart care, and vascular care. Ticket to Hollywood has contributed more than $190,000 in past 6 years.
