When Stars Align 

Palomar Health Foundation's 2021 Gala Event

Palomar Health Foundation would like to thank our dedicated sponsors and friends for their excitement around our planned gala. After a two-year hiatus, we were touched by the outpouring of support for this noteworthy event. That is why it is with a heavy heart we have made the difficult decision to cancel the When Stars Align Gala, in light of the surge of the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus. As stewards of health and safety in our community, this is the most responsible action we can take to protect our many sponsors, guests and vendors.
We are pleased to share that with the generous donations from companies and individuals who contributed to the event, we have already raised a record-breaking $300,000 to benefit Palomar Medical Center Poway and The Villas at Poway We hope we can count on you to help continue this support!
We would like to invite you to join us for a special silent auction event in lieu of the gala. This silent auction is completely virtual and will take place Monday, September 27 through Saturday, October 2. Starting Monday and throughout the week, you can browse and bid on any of the auction items at whenstarsalign.givesmart.com. There are many great items to bid on, including travel, dining and entertainment packages. All proceeds will benefit Palomar Medical Center Poway and The Villas at Poway. Take a look at this video to learn more about some of the special projects that Foundation donors are supporting in Poway.
It is with grateful hearts that we move forward as a Foundation team with unwavering resolve to make Palomar Health and the community proud! We are excited to continue our partnership with our sponsors to ensure we can continue improving the Poway campus and better serve our community. Thank you for your support and dedication.
