On Saturday, May 19, at Gala 31, Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH) will recognize David T. Hunter, with The Gibbons Award for Dimensions in Community Service. The Gibbons Award is given to those who are dedicated to the health, social and civic needs of area residents and help to improve the quality of life.

During his international career in financial services which has spanned some 37 years, Mr. Hunter has held very high-powered positions, but he has always managed to find the time to help his physical and spiritual communities. His community service may have formally begun when coached midget league football in his hometown of Donora or when he became the designated dad to accompany his daughter's Camp Fire Girls troop on field trips.

Mr. Hunter is a member of the board of directors of the Donora Public Library. He serves as a deacon at St. Paul's Baptist Church in Donora where he helped form a 501(c)( 3) organization to fund an afterschool program to provide tutoring and mentoring programs for students. In addition, Mr. Hunter is the treasurer of the Allegheny Land Trust where he helps steward land in Allegheny County for public use. His commitment to others also includes health care as he has been elected to five, three-year terms to the board of directors of Mon-Vale Health Resources, Inc., MVH's parent organization. Three years ago, he began going on humanitarian missions to Haiti with a delegation of religious leaders and medical professionals. He has been on three missions to date performing many roles ranging from helping people develop business plans to painting schools.

Gala 31, themed "A Roaring Good Time," is the Hospital's annual black-tie fundraiser. Each year exemplary individuals are celebrated for their commitment to excellence with the Dimensions in Performance Awards. These awards honor the multi-dimensional talents of special friends, benefactors and members of the health care family who have distinguished themselves in the areas of philanthropy, medicine, volunteerism and civic well-being.
