Gala in the Garden a Glittering Success

The Gala in the Garden held Saturday, June 2, 2018, in the healing gardens of Good Shepherd’s south Allentown campus was an unqualified success raising more than $318,000 for the Good Shepherd Rehabil-itation Hospital Emily Howatt Pliskatt Pediatric Unit in Bethlehem. More than 500 people attended the black tie and fun footwear event. The evening began with elegant cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by a sit-down dinner under the tent. An array of mini-desserts and dancing wrapped things up.

This year’s featured video told the heart-wrenching story of Lewy Schoenberger who was prematurely born and spent 202 days in the neonatal intensive care unit of an area hospital before coming to Good Shepherd for four months of therapy.

Thank you to Lewy Schoenberger, his parents Russell Schoenberger and Jade Szukics, our gala committee and chair Ron Donchez of BB&T, our sponsors, donors, and volunteers, who made the event so wonderful.
