SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- 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, Oct. 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.
