Lakewood Hospital Foundation proudly hosted the ninth annual Starry Night fundraiser on Friday, August 1, from 7 to 10 p.m., the biggest and best street party in Lakewood.
Recognized as one of the west side’s premier events of the summer, the festivities were held outside on Lakewood Hospital’s campus where guests dined on a variety of gourmet cuisine offerings while enjoying live entertainment.
Proceeds from Starry Night benefit the Diabetes Assistance Initiative (DAI), a program of the Lakewood Hospital Diabetes and Endocrine Center that provides funds for diabetes testing supplies, medications and education to individuals who are unable to afford this life-saving support.
The Diabetes Assistance Initiative (DAI) is completely supported through philanthropy and was established to help people with Type 1, Type 2 or gestational diabetes as well as pre-diabetes obtain medications, supplies and self-management education.
“We anxiously look forward to this event all year because it offers an opportunity to gather with friends and colleagues while enjoying fantastic food and great entertainment,” said Ken Haber, President, Lakewood Hospital Foundation, and Shannan Ritchie, Interim President and COO Lakewood Hospital.
“Most importantly, we come together as a community to make a difference in the fight against diabetes.”
