Thank you for supporting the fifth annual Glennon Gallop – Wine, Dine and Divots! It was a beautiful day filled with fun, polo and a lot of funds raised for Danis Pediatrics. Click the 2017 Event Photos button on the right to see the photos and stay-tuned for information about 2018.
A portion of previous Glennon Gallop proceeds supported the renovation of Danis Pediatric Center’s Midtown site at the corner of Sarah and Forest Park Parkway. Many socioeconomic factors have increased demand for services provided by Danis Pediatrics and in just a few short years, the number of children served has grown by nearly 70%. Danis Pediatrics is home to more than 21,000 patient visits annually, but was originally designed to accommodate 5,000 patient visits annually.
To meet this increased demand, Danis Pediatrics has added programs, services, staff and physicians to build a high-quality service for all children in need. To expand care to even more children across the region, it is necessary to build a larger center on the main campus of the hospital. Proceeds from this year’s Glennon Gallop will support these efforts, improving the patient care experience, clinical education and medical outreach footprint across the region.
Additionally funds from previous Glennon Gallop fundraisers were used for:
- A lead analyzer kit at Danis Pediatric Center (providing real-time assessment of lead
levels for at risk children ages 1-5 years)
- New mobile vision screener for Danis Pediatric Center
- New transcutaneous bilirubin instrument for Danis Midtown (allowing for a real-time
screening assessment of an infant's bilirubin level).
