As a community-based hospice we rely on the generosity of our donors to help provide the services that set us apart from other hospice organizations. We are blessed to have many community organizations and companies support us through events and sponsorships.
Nina McLemore Visits Orinda Country Club
Once again Hospice East Bay’s longtime friend, Diana Haas, arranged to have New York Designer Nina McLemore present her Spring/Summer fashions at a trunk show at the Orinda Country Club.
Nina herself was on hand to give personalized consultations to the guests to ensure the outfit they purchased was perfect for them. The two day trunk show netted over $50,000, and Hospice East Bay received a portion of the sales. We are grateful to Diana Haas, Nina McLemore and Molly Vitanel for their generosity and gifts of time.
1515 Golf Tournament
On July 20th, over 200 golfers played in a charity golf tournament hosted by the Friends and Family of 1515 Restaurant Lounge. This was the 8th annual tournament as well as the 8th year Hospice East Bay has been a beneficiary of the proceeds. We received a check for $3,200 and are very grateful for the generosity and years of support of the Friends and Family of 1515 Restaurant Lounge, as well as Cynthia Sandoval.
Friends of Hospice Orinda Luncheon
In May, The Friends of Hospice Orinda hosted a Book and Lunch Event to benefit Hospice East Bay. Author Elizabeth Rosner spoke about her life, writing and her latest book, Electric City. Afterwards, guests enjoyed a wonderful lunch highlighted by a speech from Cindy Hatton, President and CEO of Hospice East Bay and raffle drawings. The event raised $8,000 for our programs and services. We are truly fortunate to have The Friends of Hospice Orinda as partners.
More than 160 residents, along with Walnut Creek Mayor Bob Simmons, meandered around the 1.6 mile Creekside Golf Course to raise money for Hospice East Bay on Monday, May 4th. This third annual Walk began and ended at Creekside Clubhouse with refreshments donated by Whole Foods - Walnut Creek. There was a wonderful array of high-end raffle prizes, and the event raised close to $9,000! Twenty-five percent of all Rossmoor benefits held for Hospice East Bay go to the Rossmoor Respite Fund. We would like to thank Trish Dickson and all the Friends of Hospice Rossmoor for organizing this exciting event.
The Perfect Fit
Members of the GFWC Danville Women’s Club once again put on a mesmerizing spring fashion show and luncheon at Blackhawk Country Club on May 7th. The annual event, which raised $4,000, featured fashions from Chico’s and a roomful of fun raffle prizes. Cindy Hatton, President and CEO of Hospice East Bay, was the guest speaker who updated the audience about our current programs and services.
Our staff, on behalf of Hospice East Bay’s patients and their families, want to thank Danville Women’s Club for their years of loyal support and friendship and for continuing to select Hospice East Bay as the beneficiary of this fun event. Hospice East Bay and the Danville Women’s Club are a perfect fit for each other.
Rossmoor Charity Day
Thursday, September 3, was a perfect day for golf. At least that’s what the 120 people from the golf clubs of Rossmoor said when they met for the 18-hole scramble on Dollar Ranch Golf Course.
During lunch, Jamie McLanahan spoke to the group about the significance of Hospice East Bay’s Bruns House to her personally as well as the whole community.
On behalf of our Bruns patients and their families, we would like to thank Peggy Yamada and her wonderful team for organizing this fun event which raised $9,000 for Bruns House!
Legacy Society Luncheon
Hospice East Bay Board of Directors and staff gathered on July 22 to honor our Legacy Society for including us in their estate plans. Society members enjoyed cello duets and a glass of wine before sitting down to a delicious meal.
Cindy Hatton, President & CEO, gave a brief “state-of-the-organization,” and Board Chair, Jamie McLanahan Gerson, shared how volunteering at Bruns House led her to seek a leadership role with Hospice East Bay.
Many of our supporters choose to create a legacy through their estates so we can serve our community for many years to come. The Legacy Society luncheon is one way we thank members for their incredible generosity. Consider joining us next year by creating your own legacy. Please call to receive more information.
