Bridgeport Hospital hosts Dancing with the Hospital Stars

The Bridgeport Hospital Auxiliary will host its annual spring gala, Dancing with the Hospital Stars #2, Thursday, May 5, at 6 p.m., at Brooklawn Country Club, Fairfield.

Inspired by the success of last year’s gala, during which auxiliary members and hospital staff paired with professional dancers in a dance contest, this year’s event will benefit:

  • The purchase of a state-of-the-art Bravo gastroenterology device to help diagnose acid reflux disease
  • Nursing scholarships and graduation awards to students of the Bridgeport Hospital School of Nursing
  • The Dr. Tom Kennedy Toy Closet;
  • A mobile gaming station used by child life specialists for children awaiting outpatient surgery
  • A bilingual lactation consultant for the Women’s Care Center.
  • Physical therapy equipment and training for Ahlbin Rehabilitation Centers staff

Dancers include Drs. Nicholas Bertini and Amarjit Lamba; nurses Lisa Grosso and Leslie Rivera; surgical technologist Debbie Montoya; and auxiliary member Kathleen Sauer. Each will be paired with a professional dancer from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Southport.

For ticket information, call 203-384-3331.
