The GFWC Bridgeport Junior Woman's Club is thrilled to present our 2nd annual "Be the Change Ball - Fairest of Them All," benefiting the brand new WVU Medicine Children's Hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia. This $150-million facility aims to increase patient services and capacity as well as revolutionize the care of women and children in West Virginia and far beyond, and our gala will be a part of helping them achieve this goal. We are very excited to partner for the second year in a row with our amazing community to raise awareness for WVU Medicine Children's Hospital and, in doing so, provide support for our local children and their families.
Our inaugural gala was an incredible success and we were able to achieve our goal of funding a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Family Care Center as well as fund some other exciting projects. This year, our goals are even bigger! We hope to be able to provide funding for both a NICU Milk Bank and a Child Life Prep Room for WVU Medicine Children's Hospital. In addition, we also plan to purchase Brave Gowns for pediatric patients and continue funding other community initiatives and outreaches of the GFWC Bridgeport Junior Woman's Club.
