The Gala in the Garden is Good Shepherd’s premiere philanthropic event benefitting the Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital Emily Howatt Pliskatt Pediatric Unit. Cocktail and hors d’oeuvre reception starts at 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner seating at 7:30 p.m.

Mingle with friends as you stroll through Good Shepherd’s south Allentown campus. Exquisite food and beverage, fun and fellowship will be the hallmark of this exciting event.

Dress is black tie and sneakers or fun footwear.  Discounted rates for tuxedo and accessory rentals for Gala attendees is offered by C.E. Roth (610.432.9452) and Top Hat Formalwear (610.821.9525).

We also offer a fine jewelry raffle, graciously donated by Susan Bella Linski of Susan Bella Jewelry.

Your generous support of the Gala in the Garden allows Good Shepherd to continue its long tradition of not refusing treatment for children whose parents have no health insurance, or those whose insurance does not cover the fees.

Special thanks to our 2019 Gala Committee co-chairs, Mike and Shelley Pessina of Lutron Electronics Co., Inc.
