Our 65th Sapphire Anniversary Snow Ball was a great success and raised more than $50,000 to support UPMC Western Maryland’s Center for Hope and Healing, a home-like setting that offers a breath of stability and planning for next steps for those facing an addiction. To date, 600 patients have accessed the resources of the center before moving into long-term treatment options, and many have expressed gratitude for this unique opportunity.
