Magic of Life Gala Raises More Than $3 Million

Baltimore has once again made the LifeBridge Health Magic of Life Gala one of the most successful one-day fundraisers in the city.

The event, held at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, raised $3,007,500 for programs and services provided by LifeBridge Health and its member facilities– Sinai Hospital, Northwest Hospital, Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, and Courtland Gardens Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (formerly Jewish Convalescent & Nursing Home).

Leading the effort were the Magic of Life Gala chairmen and their wives, who are pictured at left: Joseph and Annette Cooper, Jon and Susan Levinson, and John and Laura Shmerler.

"The gala chairmen and our wives would like to thank the Baltimore community for making this year's gala the most successful in LifeBridge Health history," says Jon Levinson, executive vice president at Alex Cooper Auctioneers.

"The tireless efforts and dedication of our great team, combined with the support of individuals, foundations and the business community, contributed to an unforgettable night and much-needed programs and services for LifeBridge Health," Levinson says.

This year’s gala featured a performance by the season six winner of “American Idol,” Jordin Sparks, and comedian SARGE. Sparks is pictured at right with Levindale president Aric Spitulnik and his wife, Lisa Spitulnik.
