The St. Claire Foundation’s recent 2018 Signature Event raised $23,000 to support St. Claire HealthCare’s efforts to relocate and upgrade our inpatient rehabilitation services with a state-of-the-art therapy gym and functional training space, including a home simulation environment.

“We’ve been hosting annual Signature Events for 16 years,” said St. Claire Foundation Executive Director Tom Lewis. “This one set records for attendance and dollars raised. We hope everyone who attended had as much fun as our staff did!”

The most touching moment of the evening was when recent rehab patient Shelley Gulley shared the powerful story of her recovery and rehabilitation after a devastating car accident, including pictures that tracked her journey.

Attendees also enjoyed an opening reception, delicious food prepared by St. Claire HealthCare’s Aramark, silent and live auctions featuring award-winning auctioneer James Benton Pendleton, live music performed by the Lexington-based cover band Flashback and a dance floor.

A special thanks to all who attended this year’s Signature Event as it was each of you that made this contribution possible.
