What started in 1966 as the Pink Lady Ball culminated in a celebration unlike any other gala event in this region. The 2016 Heart of Gold Gala was held on April 9 at the Hilton Baltimore at the Inner Harbor. Nearly 1,000 guests came together to raise more than $1 million for Anne Arundel Medical Center and our growing cardiovascular program.

Ringing in a new era, guests celebrated AAMC’s 50th anniversary gala with a new venue, new format, and a handful of surprises and gifts for gala guests.

The Heart of Gold Gala was chaired by AAMC Foundation Board Vice-Chair Mark Powell, his wife Lynne, and Jerry Segal, MD, medical director of AAMC’s Heart Institute. A huge thank you to our Gold sponsors for their support: BB&T, Comcast, Creston G. & Betty Jane Tate Foundation, and Mark & Lynne Powell, The Powell Foundation.
