Crittenton Hospital Medical Center’s 34th Gourmet Gala Nov 7

ROCHESTER, MI – There is still time to purchase tickets for Crittenton Hospital Medical Center’s Gourmet Gala Benefit, which is being held Sunday, Nov. 7 from 4-8 p.m. The Gala brings glamour, delicious food and wine tasting to the Troy Marriott Hotel.

Since it began, the Gourmet Gala has raised nearly $2 million for Crittenton programs and services. This year’s proceeds will go toward Crittenton’s Cornerstone Campaign to raise funds for a 5-story patient tower on the Crittenton campus.

The Gourmet Gala, now in its 34th year, has long been regarded as the premier event in food and wine tasting in the Detroit Metropolitan area.  This year’s Gala promises luxurious ambiance and a variety of signature dishes from more than 40 of the area’s finest restaurants. The ‘Gala Café,’ which features an array of desserts, spirits, liqueurs and cordials, also will be returning.

Guests will also have the opportunity to win a four day, three night trip for two to Napa Valley, California by purchasing a $20 raffle ticket. The winner will be announced at the Gala.  The trip includes airfare, luxury accommodations at the AVIA Napa with complimentary breakfast, full-size rental car, personalized wine tour with chauffeur and a private hands-on culinary workshop.

Benefit tickets are $75 for Friends; $125 for Patrons; and, $175 for Benefactors. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Foundation at (248) 652-5345, email or visit
