October 2014 Fundraising Gala
"Healthy mother, healthy child" was the theme of our Fourth Annual Gala to benefit Saint George Hospital held on October 25, 2014 at the historic Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC. The gala exceeded all our expectations. We had more than 400 friends attend, raised $225,000 for women and children programs at Saint George Hospital and enjoyed an evening of great music and dance.
We were privileged to honor two of our avid supporters, Joseph J. Cicippio and Dolores Nasser Summers, for inspiring others to support Saint George Hospital and for making a difference in our community, here and abroad.
The renowned Lebanese singer Aline Lahoud came all the way from Lebanon to enchant us with her charming voice and presence. She even joined the guests on the dance floor. Auctioneer Lia Kvatum made the live auction very exciting and entertaining.
Dr. Imad Mufarrij, Board member and Clinical Professor of OB/GYN, George Washington University, stressed the importance of vaccinations for women to save lives and spoke of programs established at the hospital to protect the lives of women in Lebanon. It is through the generosity of the numerous friends who support the foundation that we are able to support and expand such programs.
