The 2013 Jewel of Portage County Gala will be held in Downtown Kent, October 12, 2013.
“Our gala is called the Jewel of Portage County, we want to ensure we keep our event in Portage County,” stated Deborah Solan, executive director, Robinson Memorial Hospital Foundation. “We are thrilled that with the exciting business development taking place in Downtown Kent, we now have a venue and area large enough to host all of our guests.” Previous Gala events have been hosted at The Bertram Inn and Conference Center in Aurora.
“Since we are hosting the Gala in Downtown Kent, we wanted to tap into the businesses in the heart of it all,” said Solan. The Gala will take place in three locations, at the corners of Erie and Depeyster Streets.
A patron party will begin at 5 p.m. at Laziza, followed by a reception from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the new Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center. Dinner will take place at 7:30 p.m. in a heated tent on Erie Street and Late Night at the Gala (after-dinner parties) will take place at 9 p.m. at all three locations providing music, desserts and drinks.
Numerous sponsorship opportunities are available, as well as the chance to win one of five raffle packages, all valued at $5,000 or more.
Proceeds from the 8th Annual Jewel of Portage County Gala will be used to advance community health programs and improve access to healthcare services in Portage County.
