Magical Evening | April 18, 2015
The Foundation at KVH hosted the 12th annual Magical Evening Gala on Saturday, April 18 at the CWU SURC Ballroom.

Guests enjoyed a spectacular evening, including social hour music by the Celtic Quartet, a multi-course dinner, local wines, premier raffles, entertainment from the Popera Men, and the highly regarded fund-a-need auction.  Over 340 people attended, raising over $70,000 for the Foundation. 

Mark your calendars to join us for the 13th Annual Gala on Saturday, April 16, 2016.

Following dinner, guests had the opportunity to support a vital need for KVH: the upgrade of our rapid response nurse call system. See the video below to learn more about this need.

To make a donation to this project, or the Foundation in general, you can donate online, or call the Foundation office at (509) 933.8669.

Thank you to our sponsors and guests!
