Bryn Mawr Hospital, part of Main Line Health, recently received a $430,000 donation from the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair.
The donation – presented to Bryn Mawr Hospital President Andi Gilbert and Andrew Reder, Chair of the Bryn Mawr Hospital Foundation – is the third installment toward a five-year, $2 million pledge made by the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair in support of the hospital’s renovation and modernization project.
“It’s an honor to be a longstanding contributor to Bryn Mawr Hospital,” said Devon Horse Show Chair Wayne W. Grafton, who presented the check along with 2016 Devon Country Fair Co-Chairs Karin Maynard and Beth Wright and Horse Show President Richard O’Donnell. “The ability to present this check each year is directly tied to the success of the Show, which is run by thousands of volunteers, to whom we are grateful.”
The Devon Horse Show and Country Fair, in its 120th year, has supported Bryn Mawr Hospital since selecting it as its sole beneficiary in 1919. The Devon Horse Show has contributed $1,355,000 of its pledge of $2 million toward Bryn Mawr Hospital’s For Every Generation capital campaign.
“Devon has been extremely generous toward Bryn Mawr Hospital for nearly 100 years – and Devon’s extraordinary $2 million pledge toward our For Every Generation capital campaign is just the latest example of their generosity,” said Andi Gilbert, President of Bryn Mawr Hospital. “These volunteers give of themselves, year-round, so that we can provide an enhanced experience for our patients and families.”
The $253 million renovation and modernization project, the most significant investment in the hospital’s history, will allow the 123-year-old hospital to continue to provide superior care to the communities it serves for generations to come. The project will include a new intensive care unit to be dedicated by the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair.
