Published on January 10, 2023


Attendees of the Greater Irvine Chamber’s Jan. 26 Excellence in Healthcare Gala, presented by MemorialCare, will be able to bid on individual items and packages during the Champagne reception sponsored by Hoag Health from 5:30–6:30 p.m. Exclusive items include a Top Golf & Irvine Staycation, Living the Suite Life with the Anaheim Ducks for four, private Newport Beach Harbor Cruise for up to eight people, LA Galaxy VIP Treatment for two, OC Soccer Club Night Out including a pre-game meal for four on the VIP Club Deck, live or virtual wine tasting party with a private Wine Advisor for 14-18 people, Gorjana Glitz & Glamour package, two Club-level tickets to a Rams game overlooking the 15-yard line, and much more!

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Irvine Forward Foundation, the Chamber’s nonprofit that supports educational achievement and career readiness in Irvine through scholarships and community engagement.

“The Irvine Forward Foundation was formed to assist Orange County students in their educational pursuits and essential skills development,” said Jessica Welch, the nonprofit’s executive director and executive vice president of the Greater Irvine Chamber. “Since the relaunch of Irvine Chamber Education Foundation as Irvine Forward Foundation in 2021, the Foundation has awarded nearly $35,000 to numerous students through generous contributions from community members.”

Through its Excellence in Healthcare awards program, the Greater Irvine Chamber will recognize outstanding healthcare organizations, executives, practitioners, and other innovative industry leaders who continue to serve and make advancements in the region’s formidable healthcare sector. Awards will be presented during the Gala on Thursday, Jan. 26, 5:30 – 8 p.m., at the Irvine Marriott, 18000 Von Karman Ave.

Individual tickets for the black-tie event are $250 for Greater Irvine Chamber members and $400 for non-members.
