Oct. 15: Center for Hope Auxiliary Prepares for Annual October Fashion Show Fundraiser

The Auxiliary of the Center for Hope Hospice, based in Scotch Plains, is preparing for the annual and highly anticipated Fashion Show, Luncheon & Tricky Tray fundraiser. This year’s event will be on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at Pines Manor, 2085 Lincoln Highway in Edison, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Proceeds from the event support the non-profit organization’s Charitable Care program, which last year provided nearly $3 million in free or reduced cost care to those who could not otherwise afford it.

The fun-filled afternoon includes a runway fashion show with outfits modeled by Auxiliary members, full-course luncheon and a tricky tray with more than 100 baskets donated by area residents and businesses. There will also be a 50-50- raffle, a high-value gift card apron and a Grand Raffle with three prizes totaling over $3500 in value.

Anyone wishing to donate a gift certificate for the apron or make a monetary donation to support the event may send it to the Center for Hope Hospice office at 1900 Raritan Road, Scotch Plains, N.J. 07076; please mark the envelope “Fashion Show donation.”
