Fundraising Events for Gaylord

Fun and Philanthropy Come Together

Gaylord hosts several special events and your attendance or sponsorship at any or all is most appreciated. You can also host your own event to benefit Gaylord.

Have fun while supporting Gaylord! Throughout the year fundraising events are hosted by Gaylord or are created and hosted on our behalf by individuals, businesses, foundations or organizations. We hope that you will not only attend an event but that you or your organization will be inspired to create a benefit event on behalf of Gaylord.  

To learn how you can host an event download our fundraising event guide and send the completed form with your event proposal to: Tara Knapp, Gaylord Hospital, P.O. Box 400, Wallingford, CT 06492, and we will be in touch. Questions? Contact Tara Knapp at (203) 284-2838 or email: [email protected]
