SwedishAmerican’s Swedes’ Night Raises $170,000 for Hospital Modernization Projects

The SwedishAmerican Foundation’s Swedes’ Night (formerly known as Cruise) was a huge success with more than 450 supporters in attendance. The event, held on March 3 at Giovanni’s, raised more than $170,000. 

The theme of Swedes’ Night was “100 Years of Philanthropy,” celebrating all our donors have made possible over the past 100 years at SwedishAmerican Hospital. The hospital’s proud past was on display, but so was the future. All proceeds from Swedes’ Night will support SwedishAmerican’s modernization projects, specifically the soon-to-be constructed Riverwest Clinic, located on Marchesano Drive, scheduled to open in the fall of this year.

“Swedes’ Night was extremely successful and helped showcase all that SwedishAmerican has accomplished in the last 100 years and all that’s ahead,” says SwedishAmerican Foundation Director Laura Wilkinson. “We are very thankful for our supporters and we look forward to modernizing our campus and building new state-of-the-art clinics to allow our patients and residents to have more access to high-quality healthcare.”
