Berlin, Md. – $108,750.00 was raised in support of this year’s Hal Glick Distinguished Service Award Gala, to be distributed amongst local charities. Kimmerly Messick, recipient of the 2018 Hal Glick Distinguished Service award, distributed $10,000 to the Expansion of Emergency Department and Outpatient Services, while the Temple Bat Yam distributed $10,000 of their funds to the John H. “Jack” Burbage, Jr. Regional Cancer Care Center – two of the 5 projects included in the $35,000,000 capital projects in the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future.

The Glick Award started in 2010 with the recognition of Hal Glick, the pioneering Ocean City realtor. The next year, the award began bearing Glick’s name, and has ever since. Over the last eight years, philanthropists have been recognized in Glick’s name for their support of local community non-profits, including Atlantic General Hospital.

In addition to the annual recipients AGH Foundation and Temple Bat Yam, three local charities were chosen by Cropper among which to distribute funds; Atlantic General Hospital’s expansion of the Emergency Department and Outpatient Services, Rebecca and Leighton Moore Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit at PRMC, and the Salisbury University Kimmerly Messick Scholarship.

“We at Atlantic General Hospital are honored to be one of the three charities to receive an annual donation at this event,” stated Michael Franklin, President and CEO of AGH.
