Hamot Strong Fundraiser and Auction

Friday, Sep. 18 • 6:00 pm

Bayfront Convention Center, 1 Sassafras Pier, Erie, Pa.

Hamot Strong is a fundraising event and auction to celebrate our exceptional staff and the philanthropy that supports them.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 to provide scholarships for employees seeking advanced degrees and training opportunities pertaining to all areas of health care.

The name Hamot Strong comes from our founder, Charles Hamot Strong, who donated his grandfather’s homestead to start Hamot Hospital in 1881. Today, that same spirit of philanthropy provides invaluable resources to our facility and the health care professionals who are the backbone of our mission. Continued education is a particularly important piece of what we do since it, almost more than anything else, equips our hospital with the skills and expertise that allow us to give patients the highest level of care possible.
