Berlin, Md. – An event record of $130,000 was raised in support of this year’s
Hal Glick Distinguished Service Award Gala, to be distributed amongst
local charities. As one of the annual recipients, Atlantic General Hospital
Foundation received a $9,000 donation from this year’s gala.
The Glick Award started in 2010 with the recognition of Hal Glick, the
pioneering Ocean City realtor. The next year, the award began bearing
Glick’s name, and has ever since. Over the last eight years, philanthropists
have been recognized in Glick’s name for their support of local
community non-profits, including Atlantic General Hospital.
Reese Cropper III, the 2017 recipient of the Hal Glick Distinguished Service
Award, bestowed this year’s award funds, giving a moving speech
on suicide prevention and awareness.
In addition to the annual recipients AGH Foundation and Temple Bat Yam,
three local charities were chosen by Cropper among which to distribute
funds; Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services, Inc., Rebecca and
Leighton Moore Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit at PRMC, and
The Jesse Klump Suicide Awareness Prevention Program.
“We at Atlantic General Hospital are honored to be one of the two
charities to receive an annual donation at this event,” stated Michael
Franklin, President and CEO of AGH.
