This event is being hosted in conjunction with Goldman Sachs Philanthropy Day. Hundreds of Goldman Sachs employees and investors will learn about various nonprofit organizations from throughout the world. A panel of speakers, including Dr. Boachie-Adjei, will share the message of giving and will encourage others to develop their own philanthropic agenda. The FOCOS Gala will serve as a culmination to the day and all proceeds will support our patients at the FOCOS Hospital.
