WHITTIER - The Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital Foundation will host its annual gala, themed "Oh What a Night," this Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa.This year's gala will benefit the Surgery Center, which will be housed in the new Plaza Tower scheduled to open this fall. The Plaza Tower will be six-stories and house a variety of services including the new Surgery Center featuring 10 operating rooms and an entirely new, technically advanced Critical Care Center. Once the tower is complete, PIH will be the only hospital in its service area to have achieved full, on-time compliance with SB 1953 - California's seismic safety law - put into effect following the Northridge earthquake. The black-tie event begins with a cocktail reception followed by a silent auction, dinner, dancing and live auction. Featured in the silent auction will be a variety of items ranging from electronics, trips, jewelry, handbags and tickets to sporting events.
