We Have a Winner!

WVU Medicine Children’s Annual Gala
The 2020 WVU Medicine Children’s Annual Gala was hosted on Saturday, February 8th at the Morgantown Marriott at Waterfront Place Hotel. The annual black-tie fundraiser, featuring the Pittsburgh Steeler’s Ryan Shazier as the emcee, was an evening to celebrate the achievements of the patients and staff. This year the money raised will go to the new children’s hospital being built, which is scheduled to open June 2021, as well as the “Grow Children Campaign” to support programming for children and their parents. Landau sponsored a table for this worthy cause and had a wonderful evening.
The Season of Giving
The holiday season is a time to spread joy and cheer to your family, friends, and community. A little generosity can go a long way, especially during the holiday season. This year Landau participated in the Wexford Healthcare Center’s Adopt a Resident program, providing holiday gifts to residents in need. Gifts were collected and assembled in our front lobby from December 2nd-19th and delivered to the nursing home on December 20th. We hope the residents enjoyed their gifts and that we could make their day a little brighter.
