Gold Dust Gala’s “For the Women We Love” on May 12, 2012

Camarillo, California, 04/06//2012

Community Memorial Hospital Foundation’s annual Gold Dust Gala is honoring The Women We Love - mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, and friends - the women who help shape our lives and who impact our lives in a profound way.

This year, The Gold Dust Gala will be held in Camarillo at the beautiful Serra Center at 5205 Upland Road.  With Rudabeh Shahbazi from ABC7 Eyewitness News as Mistress of Ceremonies, the evening will certainly be outstanding.

Doors open at 6pm for Silent Auction bidding, cocktails, raffle, and tribute tree.   A dinner featuring Command Performance’s Classic California Cuisine will be followed by the dance-inspiring music of “Platinum Groove.”

Tickets and sponsorship packages may be purchased on line at or call the Foundation Office at 805.667.2881.

For over two decades, the Gold Dust Gala has annually raised funds and awareness for the Healthy Women’s Program.  This unique program offers breast and cervical cancer screenings to women living in Ventura County who are unable to pay due to lack of insurance or are under-insured.

In 2011, the Healthy Women’s Program assisted hundreds of women, specifically offering breast cancer education, screenings, and treatment, as well as with cervical cancer screenings and vaccinations.  All of these services were covered by the Healthy Women’s Program, which is funded by the Gold Dust Gala.

Community Memorial Hospital is a member of Community Memorial Health System, a not-for-profit health system, which is comprised of Community Memorial Hospital, Ojai Valley Community Hospital and twelve family-practice health centers entitled Centers for Family Health.  The health system is located in Ventura, California
