For immediate release: April 25, 2015

The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center Gala, scheduled to take place tonight at the Baltimore Convention Center, has been postponed.

The theme of this year's Gala, "Answering the Call," celebrates the unique, nimble network of individuals who make up Maryland's model Emergency Medical Services system -- first responders, police, firefighters, medical personnel -- who support our community. Out of respect of the important work that these key personnel perform, we believe it is our responsibility to not divert any resources from where they may be needed this evening. Postponing the Gala will also help diminish additional vehicles downtown at a very busy time.

Our mission at Shock Trauma is to always be there when our community needs us. We are hopeful for peaceful and safe gatherings during this pivotal time in our beloved City's history. If we are needed -- tonight or any night -- we will be there to "Answer the Call."
