Hundreds of people took a journey to the red carpet to support Lima Memorial.

The Lima Memorial Foundation held their 17th Annual Fundraising Gala, Journey to the Red Carpet, at the Lima Mall Thursday evening (9/13/18). More than 800 guests showed up to enjoy a red carpet experience featuring some of their favorite movie characters and refreshments from the Coconut Club. There were multiple opportunities for people to support the foundation including silent and live auctions as well as a fund-a-need paddle raise. Best of all, every dollar given will go back to support a need in the community. 

"A hundred percent of it stays here in Lima," says Lima Memorial Health Systems President and CEO Mike Swick. "It's going to go towards our rehabilitation unit and stuff on the fourth floor of the hospital. We're going to totally renovate it and bring it up to state-of-the-art because when you think about people who need rehab services and stuff, we have great staff, we have to have great equipment to go with it. We're really going to be in a situation where this fundraiser tonight will allow us to set the tone for the future."

The event is expected to raise more than $700,000 for the foundation.
