The BennettStrong Foundation is proud to announce the date of the foundation’s second annual gala, which is set for Saturday, February 16, 2019 at the Northampton Valley Country Club in Richboro, Pa. Last year, BennettStrong Foundation raised over $6,000 from its inaugural gala to implement parent survival kits in the N/IICU at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Last year’s gala featured keynote speaker David A. Munson, MD. Dr. Munson serves as the Medical Director for the N/IICU at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He spoke highly of the importance of the parent survival kits stating that the Foundation ‘will have a profound impact on thousands of families in the N/IICU.’
Kevin Casey, the voice of the Philadelphia Union and La Salle University basketball, served as emcee of the event and kept the guests entertained throughout the night. Great Big House provided musical entertainment for the evening, as guests were able to mingle on the dance floor. Guests described an incredibly energetic and celebratory energy throughout the night. Throughout the night gala attendees had the opportunity to win a variety of raffle baskets by generous donors within the community.
More information on the second annual gala will be available later next month, including registration for the event. If you have any questions or would like to be involved in this year’s gala preparations, please contact Co-Founders Mary and Greg Pellegrino at firstname.lastname@example.org (.)
