Thank you to everyone who attended, donated, sponsored or supported the Dr. Terry Weiss Memorial Fundraiser this past Saturday, June 24th.
It was a great evening spent celebrating Dr. Ralph Gruppo’s and Dr. Joseph Palascak’s over 80 years of combined service to the bleeding disorder community. Over 200 friends, family, former patients, staff and fans in general came to honor two great physicians.
Attendees enjoyed a cocktail reception and a chance to mingle with old friends and new. The program, emceed by T.D. Hughes followed dinner. A video tribute of patients and staff was enjoyed by all, followed by a presentation of gifts. The picture below is the bobblehead each of them received. Attendees were able to bid on a copy in our silent auction, among many other items.
A special thank you to Bob Herzog from Channel 12 who co-emceed the program. He did a phenomenal job and even gave a demonstration on how to do “the Sprinkler”!
