Light up the Night

LUTN 2017
 


Thank you to all who attended our 2017 summer gala, Light Up the Night; together we raised more than $267,000. Proceeds from this annual event benefit important research initiatives that enable our emergency physicians and nurses to stay on the leading-edge of emergency medical care.

And new in 2017, a portion of the proceeds were earmarked to support the Pediatric Emergency Department at Albany Med, which will be the only one of its kind in northeastern New York and western New England. Slated to open in 2018, it will offer children and adolescents direct access to the expertise of Albany Med's specialists in an environment designed especially for them – "A Place of Their Own."
