Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice Releases 2019 Gala Details
Marlton, NJ – Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice will hold its annual Celebration of Life Gala, sponsored by Holman Enterprises, on February 9, 2019 at The Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill. This year’s gala theme is “TEAM,” celebrating the diverse teams of people – medical hospice and palliative teams, as well as volunteers, donors, boards/committees and others – who work together each day to support Samaritan patients and their families. In keeping with the theme, Samaritan will recognize three local families for their dedication to the organization throughout the years: the Buehler family of Marlton, Gladden family of Willingboro and Mancine family of Cinnaminson.
The evening will feature delicious food, live music by Masquerade, dancing and an Online Auction with a variety of fabulous prizes. Jon Runyan, retired Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle and NFL vice president of policy and rules administration, will serve as emcee. Two winners of the organization’s annual Delightful Dining raffle will also be announced during the event – at $10 each, these unique raffle tickets offer the chance to win twelve $100 dining gift certificates (valued at a total of $1,200) to some of the area’s finest restaurants.
Proceeds from the evening will benefit Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice patients and their families.
