Annual Gala 2022: An Evening of Masquerade

The Foundation Annual Gala in Willmar on Nov. 11 was a record-breaking success!

On Nov. 11, the annual CentraCare Foundation Gala raised over $360,000 to support the purchase of a new linear accelerator for the CentraCare – Willmar Cancer Center and the Cancer Support Fund. This is the highest amount raised in the 24-year history of the event.

“I am grateful for the community support at the 2022 Annual Gala,” said Brad Schmidt, Board Member for CentraCare Foundation and Chair of the CentraCare Foundation Southwest Regional Philanthropy Council. “Because of the generous sponsors, donors, attendees, Foundation staff, and the volunteer planning committee who made this event possible, cancer patients and their families will continue to receive state-of-the-art critical care and support.”

The linear accelerator is a large-scale piece of medical equipment used in external beam radiation treatment. Linear accelerators are used to treat a variety of cancers throughout the body. “The new linear accelerator has a shorter treatment time and new treatment techniques,” said Conrad Mitzel, Director, CentraCare – Willmar Cancer Center, “In addition, we are keeping care close to home for patients throughout the west-central and southwest region.”

Thanks to Chappell Central, Inc. and the Pierce Family Foundation for their commitment to advancing local health care, and all the sponsors, volunteers, donors,and attendees.
