ARMC Foundation Selects Honorees for Inaugural Gala

COLTON, CA – The Arrowhead Regional Medical Center Foundation will recognize five honorees at its Inaugural Gala and Awards Dinner on May 8. The event, which will be held at the National Orange Show Events Center in San Bernardino, will benefit Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC).

The ARMC Foundation Gala Committee and members of the community were asked for nominations in five categories: Honorary Chair; Arrowhead of the Year; Physician of the Year; Partnership of the Year; and Philanthropist of the Year. The Gala’s nominating subcommittee based its selections on support for ARMC and the community.

The award winners for the Inaugural Gala are: County of San Bernardino Fifth District Supervisor, Josie Gonzales, Honorary Chair; Dr. Dev GnanaDev, Arrowhead of the Year; Dr. Steven M. Beutler, Physician of the Year; Professional Hospital Supply, Partnership of the Year; and Anne Hirschman Cress, Philanthropist of the Year.

“We selected the honorees for their hard work, dedication and commitment to ARMC now and in the past,” said Frank Reyes, executive director of the ARMC Foundation, which assists the hospital with funding for new equipment and programs. “This is the Foundation’s first Gala, so we wanted to ensure that whoever we selected has made a significant difference in the community.”

The award winners will be recognized at the Gala and receive a distinctive plaque. “The Gala’s theme, ‘What I love about ARMC,’ reflects the appreciation that the community has for the great care the hospital provides,” said Reyes. “The funds raised
from the Gala will help purchase much-needed equipment for the hospital.”

The Gala will feature keynote speaker Sam Cunningham, a former USC running back, who also played nine seasons in the NFL for the New England Patriots. Founded in 1977, the ARMC Foundation’s mission is to assist the Medical Center in providing quality health care and health education to our community by enlisting and increasing public and private interest, involvement and financial support.
