Gala in the Garden 2024

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation hosted an elegant evening of music and dining on Saturday, June 1, 2024, for the Gala in the Garden, benefitting children and families served by the inpatient pediatric rehabilitation programs at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital Emily Howatt Pliskatt Pediatric Unit in Bethlehem, Pa.

Led by Pediatric Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Medical Director Kimberly Kuchinski, MD, MPH, Good Shepherd’s 20-bed unit is the only pediatric rehabilitation unit in the region and the only CARF-certified ventilator weaning provider in Pennsylvania. The unit cares for children from birth to age 21, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

This year’s event, which was black tie optional and sneakers/fun footwear, took place in a climate-controlled tent outside of Good Shepherd’s Hyland Center for Health & Technology on our South Allentown campus, 850 S. 5th St., Allentown, PA 18103.

Lutron Electronics Co. Inc. was the 2024 presenting sponsor.
