“No one has ever become poor by giving.”
Ms. Frank hit it right on the head there, giving is good! We thought we’d give y’all a chance to get in on a great way to help out a wonderful local organization, while enjoying a lovely evening.
We are happy to announce that we are are hosting a Party with a Purpose to raise money for Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County! This organization provides free, non-medical support for individuals living at the end of their lives, along with help for their families and caregivers. As a community-based non-profit working in and around Hancock County, these are our people working to help us out. It is only fitting that we get together to offer a little support, so we are doing what we do best- throwing a party!
We are putting together a nice little cocktails and hors d’oeuvre evening to be held on the porch over at Edgehill in September. We will be serving a beautiful selection of appetizers created by the EL EL FRIJOLES culinary team, we’ll be drinking some fantastic cocktails provided and mixed by Dooley&Connable, and we will all be serenaded by the dulcet tones of the lovely (and nicely-scented) Carolyn Mix and Darcy Doniger who are coming all the way up from Portland to play for us! This event is pretty limited in size, as there are only 40 spaces available, and is already being promoted through the Hospice Volunteers own 2013 Parties With a Cause program, but we really wanted to give our faithful customers a chance to get in on this. There are a few important things you should know about this event:
1) We are limited to 40 guests, and HVofHC have already sold a bunch of tickets, so don’t think about this for too long.
2) While there is a $25 per person donation charged for attending, bring your checkbook because we WILL be hitting you up for even more money after we serve you a few cocktails! It will be that kind of event.
3) You totally don’t have to wear that tuxedo/ball gown for this, it isn’t that sort of fundraising gala (but it might be sweater weather by then).
