French Hospital Medical Center Foundation recently announced that it has raised more than $287,000 in support of the new Copeland Health Education Pavilion at French Hospital Medical Center. The funds were raised through donations from sponsors, contributors and close to 400 guests at the foundation’s 10th annual Celebration of Caring gala held at the San Luis Jet Center in San Luis Obispo.
The event included the presentation of the Louis Tedone M.D. Humanitarian Award to Bert and Candace Forbes for their outstanding service to the community, passion for philanthropy and civic leadership.
All proceeds will benefit the new facility, which combines state-of-the art technology and health-related research to advance healthcare education for the staff, community and academic partner, Cal Poly.
