We are happy to announce that the St. Mary Medical Center Foundation ’s 21 st Annual Gala, held on Saturday, September 22, was a huge success! We’ve been producing this event for over seven years and this years' charity event benefiting St. Joseph Health and St. Mary Victorville was the best yet! We transformed a raw barn space at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds into an elegant and chic environment in the middle of the High Desert. Draped walls, custom lighting, stage, specialty linens and centerpieces adorned with crystals were just a few elements that helped pull together this event.

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange were honored for their tireless work to provide high quality care to thousands in the High Desert at St. Joseph Hospital .
