On December 4, 2015, the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair presented Bryn Mawr Hospital President Andi Gilbert with a check for $500,000. This is the largest gift that Devon has ever presented to the hospital and the second installment towards a five-year, $2 million pledge to support the For Every Generation capital campaign and modernization project at Bryn Mawr Hospital.
Presenting the check were Gail McCarthy and Karin Maynard, co-chairs of the 2015 Devon Country Fair, along with Wayne Grafton, Devon Horse Show chair, and Richard O’Donnell, Devon Horse Show president. In addition to Andi Gilbert, Bryn Mawr Hospital Foundation Chair Andrew Reder spoke at the reception, offering gratitude for the hard work of all Devon volunteers on behalf of the entire foundation board.
Devon Horse Show Chair Wayne Grafton, who is also a member of the Bryn Mawr Hospital Foundation Board, said, “I must say, I feel very privileged to be part of this organization. We have many plans for the future, but the most important one is to continue the rich tradition in Devon and the unfaltering support of our almost 100-year-old relationship with Bryn Mawr Hospital.”
