The Adventist Health White Memorial Gala 2023 was held on October 29 at the historic Vibiana.
Attendees included Adventist Health White Memorial leadership, elected officials, business leaders and community residents, all celebrating the theme “TOGETHER INSPIRED.

The ambiance, enhanced by the flutter of butterflies symbolizing hope, beautifully echoed the event’s theme.
