The Gala Chairs and Community Hope are pleased to be honoring Mike Kaufman, Chief Executive Officer of Cardinal Health and Thomas Kendris, US Country President, US Country Head Legal and President of Novartis Corporation at the 22nd Annual Sparkle of Hope Gala on Wednesday, October 17, 2018.

The Sparkle of Hope gala was founded in 1997 by pharmaceutical icon Fred Hassan and has raised $12.5 million in support of Community Hope's mission. Retaining his active participation in the gala, Founding Chair Hassan turned over the leadership of the event to Brent Saunders, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allergan plc, beginning in 2017. Under Saunders leadership, the gala set a record last year with $1.5 million raised. This included $250,000 donated at the event to support our veterans mental health campaign.
