The Women and Infants Division at Temple Hospital - which includes the Departments of Pediatrics and

Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences - is one of the most critical divisions within TUH. The Women and Infants Division provides vital services to over 65,000 patients and delivers nearly 3,000 babies annually.

With your support during the Special Appeal, Temple's experienced and passionate physicians, nurses and staff will broaden their reach and deepen their commitment to our patients and their families. We will also be able to provide mothers and supporting family members with the comprehensive care they need to ensure a healthy head start for newborns, mothers, families, and the Philadelphia community as a whole.

The 2017 Acres of Diamonds Gala, marking the 125th anniversary of Temple University Hospital, was a breath-taking success.

With a record-breaking 1100 people in attendance, the Gala set a new fundraising standard, raising more than $1.4M for the Hospital and the patients it serves.

The gathered crowd was especially enthusiastic under the custom-built tent on the grounds of the Please Touch Museum, collectively donating over $405K during a special pop-up appeal for the Hospital's Women and Infants Division.

If you missed the Gala, you can still make a gift to the Hospital by donating above.

This year's Diamond Award Honoree was Richard M. Englert, EdD, president of Temple University, for his unwavering commitment to the Temple community.

The evening came to an end with a spectacular private concert by Philadelphia legend Patti LaBelle.

For 125 years, Temple University Hospital has been there to serve the community, leading the way in innovation, leadership and world-class care. On behalf of the Hospital, thanks to all who supported this year's Gala.

See you next year!
