WVU Children’s Hospital Gala Set for August 1


A wonderful gala is set for this summer to benefit the WVU Children’s Hospital.

On August 1st, you’ll be transported to a tropical paradise, and enjoy a cocktail hour, dinner, music, dancing and more.

It’s a black-tie optional event and each year a family who have used the services is honored, along with someone in the community for the work they’ve done.

Chairperson Brenda Miller says the proceeds are near and dear to their hearts.

“If you have a child who has a problem, and they need transported to WVU Children’s Hospital, we raise funds for the transport team,” said Miller.

They have an ambulance that has to be fully staffed to go out in the state or in the surrounding states to pick up your child, and they also have a helicopter. 

“It’s quite expensive to do all of this because it has to be properly staffed with the doctors if there is any problem in the air or driving,” said Miller.

The event is Saturday, August 1st at 6 p.m. at the Wheeling Park White Palace.

You can find more information and how to purchase tickets by calling 304-598-4346.

Sponsorships are still available.
