Nearly 200 women came together for Girls’ Night Out at Palacio Catering & Conference Center in Goshen, to help benefit Women’s Health Services at St. Anthony Community Hospital.
Girls Night Out, which raised nearly $30,000, featured a shopping suite that included raffle baskets along with over a dozen unique vendors and health and beauty experts. Keynote speaker, Dr. Emily Gordon, internal medicine physician at Bon Secours Medical Group, kicked off the dinner portion of the evening with a presentation on women’s health, followed by comedian Robin Fox.
Girls Night Out was hosted by the Bon Secours Warwick Healthcare Foundation. Co-chairs, Terry Quint and Barbara Sullivan, members of the Foundation Board of Directors, along with a devoted committee of 11 hospital staff and community members, were thrilled with the inaugural event.
“Girls Night Out exceeded our expectations on every level, from fundraising to ‘friend-raising.’ We want to thank everyone who made this night successful,” said Sullivan. Quint added, “We are most grateful for the overwhelming generosity of our hospital community.”
Girls’ Night Out fundraising celebrations are hosted by WMCHealth for member hospitals across the Hudson Valley, including Good Samaritan Hospital, Westchester Medical Center and MidHudson Regional Hospital.
St. Anthony Community Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital are both members of Westchester Medical Center Health Network.
