The Event

The White Coat Grady Gala: Honoring Healthcare Heroes, began under the leadership of Ada Lee Correll and Lovette Russell who recognized the value of holding a gala to honor Grady physicians. The White Coat Grady Gala is a time to honor individuals who have aided in making Grady one of the leading public academic healthcare systems in the country. More than 850 community leaders attend the annual black-tie event to celebrate healthcare heroes, the patients they serve, and to offer support to the health system.

In its ninth year, the black tie Gala will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at the Georgia Aquarium. A reception will be held at 6:00 pm, followed by the dinner and program at 7:00 pm, and an after party. This year's co-chairs include CEO of James Dallas & Associates and Grady Memorial Hospital Corporation board member, H. James Dallas, and his wife, Celest, and CEO of SunTrust Banks, Inc., Bill Rogers, and his wife, Ashley.

The 2018 Gala raised $1.3 million towards Grady's lifesaving care and was co-chaired by Regional Managing Partner of Ernst & Young, Sam Johnson and his wife, Stefanie, and former CEO of Post Properties, Dave Stockert and his wife, Cammie Ives.
