St. Joseph’s Health Foundation recently held its annual Gala at The Legacy Castle in Pompton Plains, New Jersey.

“The evening was magical thanks to the leadership of our co-chairs, outstanding honorees and generous supporters,” said Robert Budelman, Vice President of Development, St. Joseph’s Health Foundation. “After three years of not being able to hold our Gala because of COVID-19, it was wonderful to come together and celebrate all the good happening at St. Joseph’s Health.”

Holahan, MD, recipient of the Distinguished Physician Award; Steve and Saari Binder, recipients of the Marcalus Legacy Award;  and the Health Coalition of Passaic County (HCPC), recipients of the Simonelli Community Award.

In addition to a night of dinner and dancing, guests were also entertained by aerialists and other performers throughout the night.
