2021 Guthrie Gala is Canceled, but Hope Endures

Guthrie’s first priority is the health and well-being of our patients, our community and our staff. As such, we have canceled the Guthrie Gala scheduled for Saturday, September 11. Please accept our sincere apology for any inconvenience this may cause. This decision was made in consultation with Guthrie clinical leaders in light of the rising COVID-19 infection rates both nationally and locally and due to the format of the Guthrie Gala (an indoor, multi-hour event that includes dancing as well as unmasked periods for the consumption of food and beverage).

Sayre House of Hope still needs your support.

Guthrie Gala

“I was diagnosed with cancer in November and life went upside down. I could no longer work and was left with no savings. The Sayre House of Hope was a life saver for me. Without it I would have been living in my car. It gave me a place to stay to help me get back on my feet and focus on my health. Thank you.”
