The excitement is building for Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham's 14th annual Gala celebrating a century of caring in the community.

The Gala promises to be a fun evening with emcee Susan Wornick, WCVB-TV's anchor/investigative consumer reporter, and NECN TV Diner and Kiss 108's Billy Costa who will host the evening's live auction.
Funds raised will go towards a $6 million dollar capital campaign for the new Beth Israel Deaconess Cancer Center and Surgical Pavilion at BID-Needham. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and BID-Needham are collaborating on this three-story comprehensive center and will break ground for the project in the spring.
"Community support is what has helped our hospital thrive and serve generations of families for the past 100 years," said BID-Needham President and CEO John Fogarty. "I hope you will join us for this wonderful celebration brought to you by your neighbors, friends, and BID-Needham staff."
