Berlin, Md. The Atlantic General Hospital Foundation held their Anniversary Celebration on May 19, 2016 to commemorate the hospital’s 23 years of providing quality health care. The event was graciously hosted by Buddy and Laura Jenkins on the grounds of their beautiful home in Berlin.

This year’s celebration, which sported a Roaring ‘20s theme and drew more than 500 attendees and 119 sponsors and donors, raised more than $120,000 for the not-for-profit hospital. Just as important, the event gave the community the opportunity to come together to celebrate the generous ongoing philanthropic support that’s allowed the hospital to continue serving Worcester County and the surrounding areas over the years.

“We sincerely thank Buddy and Laura Jenkins for hosting our celebration this year,” said Michael Franklin, president and CEO of Atlantic General Hospital. “It was a beautiful evening for us all to come together and reaffirm the community’s commitment to quality healthcare.”
