Tom and Patty Dailey support Heart & Soul Gala

GREENSBORO, Ga. – October 24, 2019 – St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital is excited to welcome Patty and Tom Dailey as sponsors for the 2020 Heart & Soul Gala that will be held on Feb. 1.

Patty and Tom both grew up and went to school in Athens. Over the 35 years of Tom’s career with Shell Oil Co., the Daileys moved more than twelve times, including living in London, England, for seven years. They have now settled down in Reynolds Lake Oconee because it is close to family, golf, and their beloved University of Georgia Bulldogs.

What makes Patty and Tom stand out is their passion of giving back to the community. Tom serves as the president of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the community outreach program at Christ Our King and Savior Catholic Church (COKAS). He is also on the society’s Georgia Board of Directors and serves as Treasurer for the organization which served over 116,500 people with a value of over $19 million in services provided last year.

Patty has helped with numerous local charitable organizations, including volunteering for over five years at First Call Pregnancy Center.  Patty was part of the 2014 inaugural Heart & Soul Gala planning committee for St. Mary’s and rejoined the committee this year. She and Tom have been sponsors for all of the Galas and have encouraged others to follow their lead in sponsoring the 2020 Heart & Soul Gala.

“The hospital is a vital factor in the health and well-being of our community,” said Patty. “As a two-time breast cancer survivor, I know the importance of early detection and utilizing the least invasive means to treat illness. I’m passionate about helping Good Sam acquire new equipment so that even more life-saving services can be provided locally. Tom and I are proud to sponsor the 2020 Gala and encourage others to join us.”
