Lily’s Hope prepares for gala

Thursday, March 12, 2020 by LOU WHEELAND Special to The Press in Local News

Staff and volunteers with Lily’s Hope Foundation gathered March 7 at their headquarters along Cedar Crest Boulevard, Salisbury Township, to prepare for their annual St. Patrick’s Day Party for Preemies Gala.

Lily’s Hope Foundation is a nonprofit organization which supports families of premature babies with care packages tailored to the needs of each individual family.

Lily’s Hope was founded in 2013 when it became apparent to Jen Driscoll that preemies required a great deal of care while in a hospital and when going home.

The group also recognized that families of preemies were also in need of care, therefore the founding of Lily’s Hope.

The St. Patrick’s Day Party for Preemies fundraiser will take place March 13 at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem, 437 Main St., Bethlehem.

This semiformal, family friendly gala will include a silent auction, dinner and dancing.
