Berlin, Md. The Atlantic General Hospital Foundation will be holding their 25th Anniversary Celebration on Thursday, May 17th. There is still time to buy your admission tickets to celebrate the hospital’s growth, the community support that has made it possible, and an important milestone.

Hosted by the Gudelsky Family at their waterfront property in West Ocean City, the evening will be “A Silver Celebration,” featuring simple elegance with guests wearing cocktail attire. Highlights of the outdoor event will include an abundance of sophisticated hors d'oeuvres catered by Sunset Grille, an array of stylish cocktails provided by locals’ favorites, and live music by award-winning band DeJa Blue presented by BVT Live for your listening and dancing pleasure. The evening’s celebration will culminate with a dazzling display of pyrotechnics sponsored by Ocean Downs Casino followed by an after party at Teasers Dockside Bar.
