The Saint Agnes Foundation welcomed 150 donors, key stakeholders, community partners, and many associates and physicians to the “Faith in our Stars” reception held at Saint Agnes on Thursday, October 11, 2018. The purpose of the event was simple—to share the Foundation’s deep gratitude and thanks to the many donors who allow us to continue to serve our community in meaningful ways.

The guests were treated to the culinary genius of TF Caterers of Rockville, music by DJ Face, and live patient stories.  The Saint Agnes Foundation board of directors and staff felt strongly that our guests should hear the impact their gifts have had on the lives of so many in Baltimore. The stories showcased at “Faith in our Stars” included Carlos Randolph, a former patient in the Saint Agnes Heart Failure Clinic, Michelle Sample, a patient of Saint Agnes Cancer Institute Breast Link program, and a story of a young man that sadly lost his life to a drug overdose and the need for the work our newly formed Health Institute is doing around the opioid epidemic. Saint Agnes Healthcare continues to focus not only on care within our hospital but in taking care of the community. We are proud of the vision of Health beyond Healthcare, where person centered care, regardless of one’s ability to pay is provided in the hospital and beyond its walls.
