MedStar St. Mary's hosts annual gala benefiting healthcare scholarships

Leonardtown, MD – Attendees enjoyed a magical night down the rabbit hole at the MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital 2018 Gala, held Nov. 16 at the Hollywood Social Hall.

Sponsored by the hospital and the Family of Francis Taylor, Sr., the annual black-tie affair featured a gourmet dinner and dessert by Ken’s Creative Kitchen of Annapolis with live entertainment by Paradigm. The hall was transformed into a whimsical experience for more than 500 guests.

Nearly $135,000 was raised in net proceeds to help fund scholarships through MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital. To date, 149 scholarships have been awarded to local students pursuing healthcare careers in return for their commitment to bringing their expertise back to our facility.

Chances were sold to win one of two necklaces and an accompanying gentleman’s gift, courtesy of G&H Jewelers. Micheline Lopez-Estrada held the winning number and selected a stunning gemstone and diamond pendant as her prize.

MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital would like to acknowledge this year’s contributors, especially the Family of Francis Taylor, Sr., this year’s Presenting Sponsor ($25,000).
