The Lankenau Medical Center's John B.
Deaver Auxiliary of the Women’s Board is holding its annual dinner
on Saturday, October, 5, 2013. This Gatsby-themed gala will take
place at the Baldwin School at 6 PM and period dress is
encouraged. Live and silent auctions will include stays in
exclusive properties in Key West and Montana, specialty wine collections
and other unique opportunities.
The main goal of this volunteer-led auxiliary is fundraising to support Lankenau’s progressive expansion of programs and services that enhance patient care. This evening’s proceeds will help the Woman’s Board fulfill its recent $1,000,000 pledge toward this end.
If you would like to receive an invitation or become a sponsor, please contact Susan Williamson in the Volunteer Office at 484-476-2139 or Williamsons@mlhs.org. Additional information can be obtained at on the Auxiliary's website.
