Elizabeth Koenig and Shannon Sherburne. Over 350 guests attended the event which was billed “An Evening in Paris.” According to Scott Berlucchi, President & CEO of the hospital, “the Gala was the largest ever.” Berlucchi stated that “the overwhelming support by our community is a testament to the physicians, nurses and all of the staff at the hospital for providing amazing care for the people in this community.” Money raised at the event will be dedicated to establishing a Women’s Health Center at Auburn Community Hospital. This year’s Gala honored the members of the OB/GYN, Maternity and Women’s Health Team for the tremendous progress they have made in addressing women’s health needs in the community.
