This gala is the Hospital’s largest fundraiser, and recognizes the efforts of individuals and corporations that have made significant contributions to Blythedale. This year, we are proud to honor:
Chairman, PVH Corp.
David R. Pedowitz
Senior Portfolio Manager & Managing Director, Neuberger Berman
Former Board Chair, Trustee, Blythedale Children's Hospital
Proceeds from this year's gala will support Blythedale's Day Hospital Program, a specialty outpatient program for children who are able to live at home, but still require a level of medical and/or rehabilitative care that cannot be met by their school or a community outpatient program. This hospital/community partnership thrived during the pandemic. Over the past year, Blythedale ensured that our patients continued to receive the daily medical supervision, nursing care, and comprehensive rehabilitation services (physical, occupational, speech and/or feeding therapy) they needed AND continued their education through the Mt. Pleasant Blythedale Union Free School District. Keeping our Day Hospital program open during the pandemic for a full year of in-person education was a testament to the dedication of our staff, patients and families.
Last year A Celebration of Blythedale went virtually, raising more than $435,000. To watch last year's virtual gala, click here.
