Methodist Hospital’s Crystal Ball Raises $700,000

The 30th annual Methodist Hospital Crystal Ball Gala, held recently at the Pasadena Convention Center, gathered more than 770 guests to celebrate the medical center’s accomplishments and developments and raised $700,000 for Methodist’s Comprehensive Stroke Center and Heart Attack Receiving Center. This year’s event honored Patty and Mike Nijjar and was coordinated by co-chairs Sherry and Shone Wang with Aner and Rebecca Iglesias. The black-tie fete included a performance by beloved musical group Kool & the Gang, silent and live auctions, and the special live Fund-a-Need campaign.
