Saratoga Hospital Benefit Auction a Success

By Trina Lucas | News

SARATOGA SPRINGS — More than 700 guests donned animal prints and vibrant colors of the rain forest for Saratoga Hospital’s 31st annual Benefit Auction on Wednesday. It was truly a jungle under the packed tent on the grounds of Saratoga Casino and Raceway. 

After a special toast to Dr. Desmond DelGiacco and Marylou Whitney, Saratoga’s leading lady and her husband, John Hendrickson, set the tone for a night of generous support, announcing their $100,000 gift to the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. 

From there, bidders raised their paddles high and often for fine jewelry, private parties, construction and landscaping packages, a custom built playhouse and once-in-a-lifetime experiences like tickets to the Country Music Awards, a Kenyan adventure and a Beverly Hills vacation with late night TV show passes. The auction closed with gala chairs past and present joining President and CEO Angelo Calbone to recognize Terry Lee for her many years of dedicated leadership. Lee, executive director of the Saratoga Hospital Foundation, has announced she will retire this fall. 

Proceeds from the successful benefit will be used to build an endowment fund for the new Community Health Center, providing primary, dental and mental health care to those who are under- or uninsured.
