As we lead up to our marquee event Dinner With Scientists next week, we wanted to take a look back at what has been an incredible event season so far, with almost $5 million raised! So many members of our community have either led, attended or supported these initiatives in some way and for that we are grateful. Every event is critical to raise much-needed funds to support exceptional care in the hospital, community and home.
