Samaritan Hospice will hold its 30th annual gala Feb. 26 at The Westin Mt. Laurel, CEO Mary Ann Boccolini announced.

“I am pleased that Terriann Procida of Moorestown, president of Innovative Benefit Planning LLC in Cinnaminson agreed to serve as this year’s gala chairman,” said Boccolini.  “She has been successful in pulling together a fabulous group of volunteers, who have developed our Mardi Gras theme and have given generously of their time and talents to ensure another successful gala.”

Pennsauken-based Holman Automotive is the Presenting Sponsor of the event.           

American Medical Association President-elect Dr. Peter W. Carmel is this year’s honoree. Carmel, who operates at University Hospital in Newark, chairs the Department of Neurological Surgery at the New Jersey Medical School and is the co-medical director of the Neurological Institute of New Jersey. 

Proceeds from the event benefit Samaritan Hospice programs and services that are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. Samaritan also offers assistance to patients who are uninsured.

“Samaritan has never turned anyone away for an inability to pay,” explained Boccolini. “Another successful gala will ensure that we are able to continue to provide the highest level of care to any and all who need it.”
