Excela Health was honored for their longtime support of the American Red Cross during the 27th Annual Holiday Splendor Gala that was held at the Ramada Greensburg Hotel on Thursday, December 7, 2017.
“As we conclude our Red Cross Century of Service celebrations, it’s only fitting that we recognize Excela Health,” noted Dana Bauer, American Red Cross of Chestnut Ridge Executive Director. “Ever since our local Red Cross was established in 1917, the staff, medical professionals, and administrative leaders of Excela Health System and their community hospitals have been active partners, serving as members on various Red Cross Boards of Directors and Committees and sponsoring local blood drives. Their facilities rely on Red Cross blood products to save the lives of the patients they treat.”
The evening included a reception and dinner, silent and live auctions, prizes, and live entertainment by Told Ya So! The emcee was Dr. Michael Zorch and the auctioneer Mark Ferry.
Bauer added, “The Holiday Splendor Gala is always such a great way to start the holiday season. We are so very thankful to all who support and attend this event.”
The Red Cross is extremely thankful for all of its supporters, and especially grateful to this year’s Holiday Splendor Gala Gold Sponsors – Excela Health and First Commonwealth Bank, and Silver Sponsors - First Energy Foundation, UPS, Elliott Group, Latrobe Area Hospital Charitable Foundation, Westmoreland, Frick Foundation, and Westmoreland Plastics.
