Sayre, Pa. – Nearly 250 guests attended the 2012 Guthrie Gala, sponsored by Chesapeake Energy on September 15 at the Guthrie Clinic Atrium in Sayre, Pa. raising $58,000.
The annual event is a dinner/dance fundraiser for the Sayre House of Hope, a residence that provides family-centered lodging to patients and their loved ones while receiving medical treatment at Guthrie.
Event Coordinator Debra Kis said, “This was an extraordinary effort by everyone involved. We were able to raise significant funds to benefit a worthy cause, one that has been supported by employees, physicians, and the community for many years.”
This year’s event proceeds will top $58,000 from over 100 supportive sponsors and donors.
The Sayre House of Hope has been open for five years and, in that time, has served more than 1,200 families from 49 states and overseas. The house offers private bedrooms and a communal living and dining area for meals and mutual support. Shuttles are available to get families to and from the Guthrie campus, which is adjacent to the house.
