ALBANY, N.Y., July 7, 2006—An exciting new fundraising event to benefit Albany Medical Center’s department of emergency medicine will take place during this summer’s Saratoga racing season. The "Light up the Night" event will be held from 8pm to midnight Friday, July 28 at Sargo’s at the Saratoga National Golf Course.
The event features food provided by Sargo’s award-winning executive chefs, as well as a champagne station, an extravagant chocolate fountain, open bar, live music by popular area band The Refrigerators, and a fireworks display by Alonzo Fireworks.
The cost is $150 per person, with discounts given to groups of 10 or more. For ticket or corporate sponsorship information, call the Albany Medical Center Foundation at (518) 262-3835 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
As the region’s only state-designated Level 1 trauma center, Albany Med’s emergency department is a critical community resource. Approximately 65,000 individuals are brought to Albany Med’s ED for care each year.
Proceeds from the event will be used to fund educational opportunities, research initiatives and equipment purchases that will further strengthen Albany Med’s department of emergency medicine.
