Allaire Health Services: Sponsor of the SVMC Summer Gala which Raised $1.5M for New Cancer Center

BENNINGTON, Vt. — The Summer Gala—Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) Foundation’s signature fundraising event and the region’s premier philanthropic occasion—netted a record-breaking $1.5 million on June 8 at the 1768 Hubbell Homestead at Colgate Park in Bennington.

The event, which hosted nearly 400 people, broke all previous fundraising records in support of building a new regional cancer center at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC).

“The tremendous generosity we received this year is a testament to the exceptional cancer care SVMC’s team provides and the importance of having a facility that matches their level of excellence and expertise,” said SVMC’s Vice President of Corporate Development Leslie Keefe. “Our Summer Gala Committees, guests, sponsors and employees sent a powerful message with their contributions. The matching dollars committed by Honorary Gala Committee Co-Chair Susan Hunter and her husband, Doug Watson and SVMC’s Board of Trustees brought this cause to the next level, making it a monumental night for our organization and the communities we serve.”

Presenting sponsors included Allaire Health Services and others.
