Gala Logo

The Summer Gala—the Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) Foundation’s signature fundraising event and the region’s most elegant charity occasion—was held on the evening of June 8 at the Hubbell Homestead in Bennington. The event hosted more than 300 people and raised $250,000, of which nearly $220,000 will support advancements in breast imaging for early detection of breast cancer.

The evening’s highlights included the presentation of the Vision Award for Physician Leadership to Dr. Nancy Scattergood and the Sean L. Casey Distinguished Community Service Award to the SVHC Auxiliary. In honor of the Auxiliary’s 100th anniversary, Maxine Linehan, internationally renowned vocalist, enraptured the crowd with a tremendous performance.
