Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

DANVILLE, Pa. – Geisinger raised the curtain on an evening of dinner, dancing and showbiz-themed fun to raise money for more impactful and innovative pediatric medicine and women’s health. 

The Geisinger Ball on Broadway took place at the Pine Barn Inn to support Geisinger’s Beyond the Bricks campaign, which aims to bring exceptional pediatric and maternal-fetal care beyond the walls of Geisinger’s hospitals and closer to home for patients throughout the region. Geisinger leaders announced during the ball, which raised more than $225,000, that the campaign is nearing the $8 million mark, getting closer to its $10 million goal. 

The gala featured theatre-themed experiences, music by Main Line Affair and auction prizes that included ticket packages to the U.S. Open golf and tennis championships, Broadway tickets and signed memorabilia from Steelers great Franco Harris, Taylor Swift and Jimmy Buffett. 

“The funds raised during this event will be dedicated to doing more to understand and treat complex pediatric conditions, provide the latest state-of-the-art therapies and continue to evolve our family-centered approach to care,” said Frank Maffei, M.D., chair of Geisinger’s Department of Pediatrics.

The Beyond the Bricks campaign is committed to protecting children, enhancing care across the Geisinger footprint, improving access to behavioral health care, caring for mothers and babies and promoting education and scientific inquiry.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the support of our community,” said Nancy Lawton-Kluck, Geisinger’s chief philanthropy officer. “Their generous gifts will allow us to do more for our region’s most vulnerable children and their families.”
