WWGH Gala to Feature Travel Expert Rick Steves


Walla Walla General Hospital will be hosting the 2013 Hospital Gala on November 9, 2013 at The Marcus Whitman Hotel and Conference Center.

This year’s Gala features Guidebook author and travel TV host Rick Steves. Steves started Europe Through the Back Door, where he produces over 50 guidebooks on European travel, the most popular travel series in America on public television, a weekly hour-long national public radio show, a weekly column syndicated by the Chicago Tribune, and free travel information available through his travel center and website. He also runs a successful European tour program.

Proceeds from the Gala will fund comprehensive patient room renovations to improve the healing environment and aid patients in their recovery.

The Gala begins with a social hour and silent auction at 5:30 pm, followed by dinner, a live auction and special entertainment.
