WMCHealth Raises $1.6 Million Through Virtual Benefit

As seen in the February 2021 Issue of Advancing Care.

Through the generosity and thoughtfulness of supporters, sponsors and the community at large, $1.6 million was raised for WMCHealth during the WMCHealth Stronger Together virtual benefit. The streamed event supported the life-changing and life-saving care and services of WMCHealth hospitals.

WMCHealth Stronger Together  recognized the heroism of the Network’s workforce, thanked the community for its unwavering support and celebrated the fortitude of its patients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Benefit highlights included a $1 million pledge from Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital founding benefactors Brenda and John Fareri, as well as a $100,000 donation from Greg Chiaramonte, MD, and Gail and Sam Simon, MD, in support of services at MidHudson Regional Hospital. Proceeds from the virtual benefit will support the life-changing and life-saving care offered at WMCHealth Network hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and medical practices around the Hudson Valley.

Hosted by Bruce Beck, a nine-time New York Sports Emmy Award winner and Lead Sports Anchor for WNBC-TV, the WMCHealth Stronger Together benefit featured special messages from local and national celebrities and inspiring stories shared by frontline care teams and patients.
