The 2017 Cornerstone Society Gala
Each winter, the Gwinnett Medical Center Foundation hosts the Cornerstone Society Gala. This black-tie event is our way of saying thank you to those who have made a donation of $1,000 or more during the past calendar year. Donors can choose to give to a variety of healthcare initiatives.
Gwinnett Medical Center Foundation will host the 9th annual Cornerstone Society Gala, which will be chaired by Dr. Carlton and Patty Buchanan on February 18, 2017.
Our celebrity guest and entertainer for the upcoming gala is country performer, Vince Gill.
Vince Gill is one of the most popular singers in modern country music. He is famous for his top-notch songwriting, world-class guitar playing and warm, soaring, tenor voice, all wrapped up in a quick and easy wit. Gill achieved his big breakthrough in 1990 with “When I Call Your Name”, which won both the Country Music Association’s Single and Song of the Year award as well as a Grammy. Since then, he has won 17 more CMA honors, including Song of the Year four times – making him the most- awarded artist in that category in CMA history. Since 1990, Gill has won 20 GRAMMY Awards.
The Academy of Country Music has conferred on Gill eight awards, including its prestigious Home Depot Humanitarian Award and the 2001 Career Achievement Award. Gill was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007. He is also a member of the Grand Ole Opry. In August 2012, Gill was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is a member of the four-time Grammy-nominated band The Time Jumpers.
In the past, special guest speakers and entertainers such as Ted Koppel, James Carville and Mary Matalin, Bob and Lee Woodruff, Frank Abagnale, Kyle Maynard, Marcus Luttrell, Dr. Ben Carson, and Seth Meyers have graced the stage at this prestigious event.
In addition to nationally acclaimed speakers, musical entertainment, and celebratory food and drink, the Gala also serves as a time for the Foundation to recognize individuals, couples or groups who make a vital difference to transforming healthcare at Gwinnett Medical Center and the surrounding community.
Congratulations to our 2016 award recipients: Paige Havens, Distinguished Service Award; Dr. Leslie D. Leigh, Physician Champion Award; Randy Vaughn, Desai Compassionate Care Award and The Sport of Giving's Lynn Roberts, Kristen Sapp, and Shelila Stevens, Legacy Award.
