On Monday, November 5, 2018 the Bethesda Hospital Foundation will celebrate its 19th Annual Women of Grace Luncheon at the Delray Beach Marriott. This event, with more than 500 attendees, honors six local women whose outstanding service inspires and enriches our community. This year the exemplary women were chosen for their selfless acts of kindness and charity towards others. Chairing this spectacular event are Nicole Pasqual and Karen Rogers.
Proceeds from the Luncheon will benefit the Center for Pediatric Development, which offers children from newborns to adolescents a full range of quality rehabilitative services including Bethesda Health’s Intensive Feeding, the only feeding program in the southeast.  The program offers individualized comprehensive care for children with a wide range of feeding difficulties. Feeding difficulties affect approximately 60% of children born prematurely or children who have chronic medical conditions. The necessity for this scope of care has created a wait list and urgent need to expand.
