We hope you can join us in A Tropical Paradise on Saturday, August 1, 2015, when the Ohio Valley Friends of WVU Children's Hospital present their 11th annual gala fundraiser. The gala will feature gourmet dining, entertainment, and dancing, along with live and silent auctions.
During the cocktail reception, guests will have the opportunity to bid on many wonderful auction items while enjoying hors d'oeuvres and their favorite beverages. The evening's festivities will include a short program, dinner, entertainment, and several opportunities for guests to dance the night away.
Last year, families from the Ohio Valley turned to WVU Children's more than 7,500 times to find hope and healing. That's because WVU Children's Hospital is the only hospital in the state that provides certain kinds of specialty pediatric care, including the only pediatric heart surgery program, pediatric epilepsy monitoring unit, and neurosurgeon specializing exclusively in pediatrics.
In 2014, 27 children were transported to WVU Children's by the Pediatric Transport Team, so that the care they needed could start before they even arrived in Morgantown. The evening's proceeds benefit this crucial transport team.
Feel free to contact Dee O'Palko with WVU Children's at 304-598-4346 ext. 4 if you have any questions.
With your help, we can make miracles happen.
