Holt International Children’s Services Hosts Annual Gala and Dinner

In addition to practicing as an orthopaedic surgeon with Philadelphia Orthopaedic Associates, Andrew Collier, MD, holds teaching affiliations at Thomas Jefferson University and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. A father of five children, Andrew Collier, MD, contributes financially to the Holt International Children’s Services adoption agency.

Incorporated in 1956, the Holt International Children’s Services began when Harry and Beth Holt wanted to adopt eight Korean children but learned they would need to get the Houses of Congress to pass special laws. They worked tirelessly to find homes for children and financed the organization through their own funds. Today, the agency has found homes for almost 40,000 children.

During the year, Holt International hosts fundraising events, with one scheduled for November 14, 2015. Its annual gala and dinner auction in Omaha, Nebraska, benefits children and families scattered across the globe. Attendees can bid on auction items and enjoy a program that highlights adoption. Proceeds from the event will support children and families with counseling, education, nutrition, and financial support services.
