200 enjoy dining, dancing, bidding at Foundation gala
More than 200 people enjoyed a magical evening of dining, dancing and bidding on auction items at "Magic of Giving," the UHS Foundation's 2018 special event.
The gala was held Saturday evening in the ballroom of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in downtown Binghamton.
The annual event is an important fundraiser in support of patient care and service at UHS.
"Proceeds enhance our commitment to patient care through the support of innovation, equipment and programs at UHS," said Cory Jacobs, executive director of the Foundation.
Ms. Jacobs expressed appreciation to all who attended, and noted: "We especially thank our sponsors. As the community's leading healthcare system, we are honored to have this level of support from our partners."
More than 20 companies joined together to help sponsor the event, with Compass Group being this year's "Top Hats" sponsor and LeChase Construction the "Premier" sponsor.
In addition to the banquet, those attending enjoyed entertainment by a strolling magician, dancing to the band UUU and a silent auction of items specially donated to the Foundation for the event.
