Event benefitting the Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House


Our annual Rockin' on the Avenue fundraising event invites the community into our home to celebrate, have fun and raise sustaining funds that support the guest house ministry for the long term. The response to this event continues to be overwhelmingly positive, so we continue to rock! Join us for this year's event on June 8th, 2023 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.


The Reinhart Guest House depends on donor support

The Reinhart Guest House serves more than 1,500 families annually who are traveling from 49 states and internationally to be near loved ones at Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital. Community members support guests in many heartfelt ways, from donations for operating costs and writing notes filled with prayers and hope for our families, to preparing home-cooked meals that comfort and nourish our families.


A home away from home

A medical crisis often comes without warning. For families far from home, the stress of a loved one’s hospital stay becomes compounded by traveling back and forth to visit. The Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House serves as a home away from home to families in need of safe, comfortable and convenient accommodations close to their loved ones receiving care at Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital.
