21st Annual Gala ‘All That Jazz at Nite Lites’
LVHN Development Department
$50,000 for one year
All funds raised through Lehigh Valley Health Network’s annual black tie gala, Nite Lites, allows the region’s premier medical facility to fulfill its mission to heal, comfort, and care for the people of our community. The event’s proceeds enable it to plan for and invest in the future, ensuring that residents’ family, friends and neighbors will always be able to rely on LVHN as their partner for better health. The Dorothy Rider Pool Health Care Trust’s support of Nite Lites assists LVHN in finding new ways to enhance the quality and accessibility of care.
One project that The Dorothy Rider Pool Health Care Trust’s support of Nite Lites 2016 helped to fund is the Pediatric Oncology Infusion and Play area, which will be located in the Children’s Specialty Center at the Cedar Crest campus, uniting it with other pediatric sub-specialties in the Center. Since children often play during their infusion therapy, the new space will be located directly adjacent to a large play area that will encompass interactive video games and tables for arts and crafts, and will be designed with curtained bays and modest wall divisions.
