More than 800 people ushered in the Year of the Monkey at the Tapestry Foundation’s signature Feast of Fortune fundraiser, held at the Westin Bayshore Hotel. Chaired by Margaret Chiu, Paul Oei and Heather Pei Huang, the annual affair, sponsored by the Courier, combined fine dining and entertainment with fundraising auctions for partygoers to pledge their support for priority equipment needs at Mount St. Joseph Hospital. After a royal repast, attendees, including foundation CEO Ann Adams and Providence Health Care CEO Dianne Doyle, helped raise a record $845,000 for the venerable hospital on Prince Edward Street, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. Since the dinner’s inception in 2008, more than $3.8 million has been generated for MSJ’s priority needs.
