(Marietta, OH, May 7, 2008) - Marietta Memorial Hospital’s Home Nursing Service & Hospice is hosting a “Friends and Trends Fashion Show," on Thursday, May 8. Proceeds raised from the event will benefit the Hospice program. The fashion show will be held at the Fenton Court– Marietta College. Generous hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar begin at 5:30 p.m. The fashions, featured by Bridals by Carol G, CJ Banks, Coldwater Creek, Schafer's Leather Store, Teri Ann's, and Twisted Sisters Boutique, will start at 6:45 p.m.
Proceeds raised from this event will benefit Marietta Memorial’s hospice program, according to Susie Casto, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator. The hospice program provides care and service to terminally ill patients and their families throughout five counties. Hospice is a service covered by Medicare, Medicaid and some insurance. Reimbursements have limits and time frames – and do not always provide for the total cost of care. Services are provided regardless of ones’ ability to pay. Fund-raisers and community donations help cover the cost.
"We are so blessed to have several organizations as presenting sponsors this year," says Casto, "American Med Systems, Cranston Real Estate, Glenwood Retirement Community, and MMH Volunteer Services are all helping to make this event possible for Hospice. We very much appreciate their ongoing support. With their help, this year we hope to top the $41,000 generated from this fun and unique fundraiser."
Hospice care is designed to help the patient and family understand the disease process, and work through the emotional, spiritual, and physical discomfort associated with life limiting illnesses.
While tickets for the fashion show are sold out, there are still raffle tickets available for great prizes! Tickets are available at Home Nursing Service & Hospice office located in the Broughton Medical Center, 210 North Seventh Street, Marietta. For information call Susie Casto at (740) 373-8549.
