The gorgeous Newport Dunes is the venue for the 29th Annual Hoag Summer Classic. Once again, Hoag Hospital Foundation and the 552 Club are collaborating with more than 30 of the finest restaurants in Orange County to host an evening of fantastic food, friends and fun.
Orange County residents are fortunate to have in their own backyard the highly rated Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach. Becker’s Hospital Review named Hoag one of the “100 Great Hospitals in America.” Hoag has received this designation four times – in 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016. Hoag is the only hospital in Orange County to make the list. Additionally, out of the nine California hospitals recognized, Hoag is the only non-academic medical center.
Every year the Hoag Hospital Foundation hosts the Hoag Summer Classic – an outdoor food and music event to raise funds for Hoag. Celebrating its 29th year, the Hoag Summer Classic will feature live musical performances by The Chicago Experience and The Doobie Experience. The annual event, expected to attract thousands of Hoag donors and friends, will be held at 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, June 29, 2016, at the gorgeous Newport Dunes, 1131 Back Bay Drive in Newport Beach.

Andrizzi, PhD, president of Hoag Hospital Foundation. “Thanks to our generous donors, restaurants, and volunteers, this gourmet food event has raised more than $2 million dollars. But even more importantly, it has been for many, the introduction to volunteering with and giving to Hoag. For nearly 30 years, many of those friends continue to work tirelessly to uphold the Hoag Promise of delivering exceptional health care to Orange County.”

Our family is thankful every day that Hoag is nearby – it’s where our beautiful daughter was welcomed into the world surrounded by a team of neo-natal specialists, where my husband received exemplary care for his heart attacks, and where his bypass surgery was successfully performed. We have vowed to never live more than 15 minutes from Hoag Hospital.
