Thanks to the tireless efforts of more than 200 volunteers, the 2012 Philadelphia Antiques Show was a resounding success, raising $660,000 to help establish the Penn Lung Transplant Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion Program. This addition to Penn Medicine’s Lung Transplant Program is a major initiative to promote innovative donor recovery practices, as well as extend treatment to more patients suffering from chronic lung disease.
Proceeds from the 2013 Philadelphia Antiques Show will benefit the Department of Emergency Medicine and the Center for Resuscitation Science at Penn Medicine, helping to create state-of-the-art medical resuscitation rooms where patients suffering from cardiac arrest and other life-threatening critical illnesses can receive the most modern and advanced resuscitation care.
Over the past five decades, the Antiques Show has raised roughly $19 million for the advancement of patient care at Penn Medicine.
The 2013 Show will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Saturday, April 13, 2013 – Monday, April 15. For more information, please visit www.thephiladelphiaantiquesshow.org.
