We are so thrilled to announce that over $80,000 was raised at the 5th Annual Evening of Will Power which was held on April 26, 2014. The money raised this year will help us reach our financial commitment to the creation of a dedicated pediatric palliative care suite at the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center. In addition, we will be using these funds to support families that will be utilizing the new space by providing the comforts of home during their time at the hospital. Lastly, we will be continuing our support of the Journeys program at Albany Medical Center, a program dedicated to pediatric palliative care. To date, we have donated $125,000 in support of this amazing program.
Over 360 people were in attendance for unquestionably our biggest and best gala ever. We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many generous, caring people who helped make this fundraiser such an overwhelming success. We would like to thank our title sponsors Pediatric Dentistry of Glens Falls and Toyota of Clifton Park, as well as our Special Patrons and Event Sponsors who were so instrumental in ensuring that this evening would be memorable to all those in attendance. Pictures from the event can be viewed on our Gala 2014 page.
Planning has already begun for our 2015 Gala, which will be held on Saturday, May 2nd. In addition, we have two upcoming events before the end of 2014. Our annual Family Fun Day will be held on Saturday, September 6th and our annual Wine Tasting Happy Hour will be held on Friday, October 17th. We look forward to seeing you all at one of these special events.
