Some 1,000 people gathered at Towson University's SECU Arena, yet not a team jersey was in sight. Instead, these were fans of the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center who came dressed in tuxedos, gowns and cocktail dresses for the hospital's $500-a-ticket 150th Anniversary Gala, chaired by Janet Kelly and Vicki Deyesu.
Guests mingled on the club-level balcony for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Then it was time for the main event on the court, where scores of beautifully set tables awaited.
The event reflected many of the emotions about the hospital, according to Dr. Mohan Suntha, University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center president/CEO.
"This really does represent the revitalization of St. Joe's and our excitement about the future," he said.
