The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital recently held their 2nd Miracles on 39th Street Gala. The gala was a great success exceeding $250,000 in donations.
Funds raised will help pay for essential items needed as the hospital continues to grow, while assisting patients with their transition from hospital to home.
“The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital has been blessed by generous board members, community leaders, foundations and many others who have faithfully given to the Hospital. I would like to thank everyone who has supported the Hospital and our patients through prayer, donations and the gift of their own time – we could not provide the unique services we offer without their support,” Albert Gray, chief executive officer, The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital.
Three Champion for Children Awards were presented to awardees at the gala for their dedication to the Hospital and its patients. Awardees included: Pat Waken, volunteer; Tom Richards, community leader; and E.L. and Thelma Gaylord Foundation, charitable foundation.
Gala attendees received a special treat at the event, as Oklahoma native and season 12 winner of America’s Got Talent, Darci Lynne Farmer, entertained. Darci performed with her famous puppets Petunia the Bunny and Oscar the Mouse, and included gala guests in her performance inviting them up on stage as live puppets.
The evening came to an end as attendees enjoyed a spectacular fireworks display on the Hospital’s campus.
