All proceeds benefit Magee patient programs like art therapy, horticultural therapy, and music therapy, as well as the Patient Resource Center, ThinkFirst, Peer Mentor programs, pastoral care, the facility dog program, and wheelchair sports programs including basketball, rugby, racing, and tennis.
Night of Champions is an important fundraiser because these programs are not covered by insurance reimbursement: they are only possible through your support. Giving patients the opportunity to participate in these programs allows them to do something they are passionate about as well as giving them an outlet to express and enjoy themselves.
In addition to the silent auction, raffles, and live entertainment, two awards will be presented.
This year, the Champion in the Community award will be presented to the Beerley Family, whose “Moose’s Fund for Magee” has already helped 65 patients in its first year. The award recognizes an individual or organization that has made a significant positive contribution to Magee Rehabilitation Hospital and/or the lives of individuals in the Greater Philadelphia area.
Similarly, the BELIEVE Award, which will be presented to former-patient and Night of Champions committee-member Laura Torchin, recognizes a former Magee patient who has made positive contributions to Magee Rehabilitation Hospital and/or the Greater Philadelphia community.
If you are unable to make it to Night of Champions, you can still be a part of the event by becoming a sponsor or donating an item or for our silent auction. You can also bid on auction items from your phone, tablet, or computer by clicking here. New items are being added every day, so check back often!
