CHLB Foundation’s vigorous response to the hospital’s needs has funded every major expansion, renovation and capital equipment purchase since the 1970s.

In addition to honoring Mayor Condit’s charitable spirit, the Awards will commemorate the hospital’s 85th anniversary with a roaring 20s theme. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume!
