Pasquale and Anita Paletta Transformational Gift On September 27, 2016 the Pasquale and Anita Paletta Family announced a transformational gift of $5 Million to the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation, and issued a challenge to the people of Burlington and surrounding communities. Thanks to their extraordinary generosity, donations made to the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, through the $5 Million Pasquale and Anita Paletta Family Match Challenge. By issuing this challenge, the Paletta family encouraged all donors to double the impact of your gift in support of our Hospital’s critical needs and the 26 Joseph Brant Hospital redevelopment and expansion project to build a new Joseph Brant Hospital. The Paletta family has always called Burlington their home, and have continually looked for ways to do more for our community. Since establishing their family businesses in Burlington in 1964, they have worked to identify opportunities to create a better community in which to work and live. Thanks to the leadership of the Paletta family, and the support of the community, this Match Challenge will generate $10 Million, and help complete our $60 Million Our New Era Campaign.
