Earlier this year we asked “do you believe you can still make a difference with everything going on in the world today?” Your response was “I can and I will,” and believe me…YOU DID!  While all totals are not finalized, the preliminary figures reveal that we will generate over $200,000, and that the broadcast of our Virtual Live Stream Gala was visible to more than 100,000 households throughout the tri-county community.

Thank you again for “believing” in us! Your continued support during these unprecedented times in our world is greatly appreciated.  Mark your calendars for the 16th annual Hearts for Our Hospital Gala to be held on Saturday, February 12, 2022, at which time we are hopeful for the opportunity to see everyone in-person once again.
