The American Mission Hospital held their Annual Gala dinner at The Diplomat RadissonBlu Hotel & Spa on Thursday the 17th of November 2016 to honor more than 40 organizations for their kind support to the Island Classic event this year.


The prestigious Gala Dinner is part of the AMH’s Island Classic charity golf tournament  held under the Patronage of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.

Dr. George Cheriyan, AMH Chief Medical Officer/CEO said: “This is the 19th year of our Island Classic event and the support from the community has once again been very generous indeed, raising around BD70,000. A number of other sponsors contributed cash or in kind towards the various events and activities of the Island Classic program, ensuring that the costs of the tournament are an absolute minimum for the hospital. Tonight, we have been able to acknowledge all our sponsors for their ongoing support and give them an evening to remember.”

Dr. George Cheriyan also took the opportunity to promote the event for next year which will mark a milestone as AMH will celebrate 20 years of the Island Classic. “We are extremely grateful to His Majesty the King once again for being our Patron and for enabling us to hold this tournament on his Private Golf Course. Next year, we have plans for several surprises as we will celebrate the 20th Island Classic. The event under the guidance and encouragement of His Majesty the King.”
