Vicevich Multi-Specialty Pavilion and Lupus Center

MIRACLES will benefit the Vicevich Multi-Specialty Pavilion and Lupus Center. The Pavilion and Lupus Center was made possible by Barbara Vicevich’s significant seven-figure gift on behalf of her brother Jim and in memory of her mother Marjorie. This state-of-the-art medical “neighborhood” will provide one-stop comprehensive clinical care for patients with Lupus and complex rheumatic disease.  

We are so grateful to Barbara for her vision, compassion and generosity.  We would also like to thank Michael Grey, M.D. for introducing Barbara and the Vicevich Family to the expert and compassionate care at Saint Francis and Mount Sinai.

MIRACLES is the hospital’s largest fundraiser of the year and the largest black-tie gala in the State of Connecticut. MIRACLES draws hospital leadership, company executives, physicians, grateful patients and other loyal supporters throughout the community while generating over $1 million and attracting a sell-out crowd of 1,400 guests annually. The Gala features an exclusive silent wine and whiskey auction, top of the line cuisine and dancing.
