Great Valley Branch
The Great Valley Branch of Paoli Hospital Auxillary was founded in 1966. Today our Branch has 32 members and meets monthly from September to May. We are active in the 3 major Hospital Auxillary fundraising events throughout the year, along with our Great Valley Branch fundraising. The “Tree of Lights “is our Branch ‘s main fundraiser where we sell stars to hang on the “big Christmas tree” in the Hospital Atrium. These stars are purchased to honor or in memory of a special doctor, family member or friend and raises around $10,000-$12,000 yearly.
We also hold Bingo Night, a joint fundraiser with the Hershey’s Mill Branch which will be held this year on Thursday, September 24th at the Hershey’s Mill Community Center. This fun filled evening of bingo and food has raised over $12,000 for the Hospital.
We meet monthly, September thru May, on the 2nd Thursday in the morning and welcome anyone to join us and learn more about our fundraising activities and meet our warm and welcoming members.
