Berlin, Md. The Atlantic General Hospital Foundation held their Anniversary Celebration on May 17th to celebrate the hospital’s silver anniversary and 25 years of service to the community. The event was graciously hosted by the Gudelsky family on their property at the east end of Sunset Avenue overlooking the Ocean City Inlet and Assateague Island.

“The weather put up a fight, but in true AGH spirit our team prevailed. It was an elegant silver-themed evening, and was our biggest anniversary celebration we have ever hosted. The event was attended by a nearly 600 optimistic guests in celebration of our not-for profit hospital and the 25 years of care giving to our community,” commented AGH President and CEO Michael Franklin. “We sincerely thank the Gudelsky family for sharing their property with our friends and supporters for this celebration.”

This year’s anniversary celebration raised approximately $175,000 for the Foundation and Atlantic General Hospital.
