Highlights from 2012 St. Francis Annual Gala

To all of our generous supporters:

As we emerge from one of the worst storms in our region’s history, there is no greater concern right now than simply meeting the basic needs of shelter, food, and warmth.

In past years, we have gathered together on the Saturday evening before Thanksgiving in celebration and support of our extraordinary hospital. This year, many of us, as well as our family and friends, were still dealing with the aftermath of the storm. For these reasons, the St. Francis Hospital Gala scheduled for Saturday, November 17, was cancelled in light of the storm’s terrible toll.

Instead, we decided to focus on helping fellow Long Islanders who are most in need. We made arrangements with our event caterer to provide an early Thanksgiving meal in Long Beach. Thanks to our staff and volunteers we were able to feed 2,500 affected residents. As recovery efforts continue, we aim to be of assistance in every practical way.

Just as St. Francis Hospital was able to remain fully operational during the storm and provide care for patients evacuated from flood zones, we also continue to be here for you and everyone who depends upon us in their times of need. Please accept my deepest gratitude for your continued understanding and support.
