2022 John Knox Village Gala: Born to be Wild!

Haren Companies and Landers’ Visions Present

On behalf of John Knox Village and the John Knox Village Foundation, thank you for supporting Born to be Wild on Sept. 17.  With your generous giving, the event raised more than $220,000 toward the creation of a new headquarters for the Village’s Emergency Medical Services team.

The EMS department is currently operating out of the same quarters as it did in 1978 when there were only two staff members on call at a time.  Today, 7 team members and four ambulances stand ready 24-hours a day to respond to calls for assistance   The quarters are cramped and inadequate to house the staff, the necessary equipment, and the four ambulances.  The new facility will consist of pull-through truck bays for all of the Village ambulances; comfortable sleeping quarters; a kitchen, lounge/day room where crew members can relax between calls, a training room, office space, and room for storage.

This year’s event would not have been successful without the generous support of our vendors.  For your commitment and generosity, please accept our heartfelt thanks!
