The Gathering at Twilight gala is the Foundation’s signature eventproviding an opportunity for the community to join together in celebration and support of both Community Hospital of San Bernardino and St. Bernardine Medical Center. The Caliente-themed affair began at 5:30 p.m. and was held in the Pavilion at the National Orange Show Events Center, located at 690 South Arrowhead Avenue in San Bernardino. Donors, friends and community partners gathered together in a concerted effort to honor San Manuel and raised funds for the hospitals’ emergency departments that will serve the Inland Empire.
