Devon, PA — The Board of Directors for the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair have pledged to donate $2 million to the Bryn Mawr Hospital, just one short month after completing a $2 million donation plan over the previous five years.
In December 2018 the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair completed a five-year $2 million-dollar pledge to the Bryn Mawr Hospital. The final installment was given to Bryn Mawr Hospital President Andy Gilbert at a reception in early December that was held at the hospital.
But in 2019 the directors of the horse show wanted to keep the charitable momentum going in order to mark 100 years of support for the hospital.
“We are thrilled to mark 100 years of support with a new commitment to Bryn Mawr Hospital that will directly benefit inpatient services in the Behavioral Health Unit,” said Senior Co-Chair Darlene DiGorio. “Bryn Mawr Hospital is leading the way in behavioral health services, a critical health need in our country, and we’re proud to contribute to their efforts.”
This newly approved $2 million-dollar pledge will be provided over the next six years. The funds will be used to enhance the inpatient behavioral health unit at Bryn Mawr Hospital
Over the past 100 years, the horse show has donated more than $18 million to services and programs at Bryn Mawr Hospital. The Bryn Mawr Hospital has served the community for 125 years.
