Annual event will honor community partners, celebrate quality of life programs
Raphael Erwin McManus said, “A life well lived is the most exquisite work of art.”
This year, VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice is inviting members of the community to help build a masterpiece as it seeks to help patients, caregivers and all individuals in its 35-town service area live their best lives.
The nonprofit agency will hold its annual Breakfast in Bloom fundraiser at Woodwinds in Branford Tuesday, May 7 at 7:30 a.m. The morning will include a buffet breakfast, a raffle and a silent auction. All proceeds from the event will support the nonprofit visiting nurses agency’s vital services, including home healthcare, community wellness programs and its Family Caregiver Support Network.
The breakfast will also provide an overview of the myriad programs run by the agency to help clients be well so they can live well.
“Some individuals we serve are recovering from surgery and working hard to get back to their normal routine, while others are living with a chronic illness and seeking support as they work to achieve their best possible quality of life,” explained VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice CEO Janine Fay. “In addition to our patients, we reach thousands of caregivers and community program participants each year and seek to provide them with the best resources so they can live in good health and make the most of every day.”
VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice is a century-old nonprofit agency that employs expertly trained staff to help individuals recover and regain independence quickly and easily. When a cure is no longer an option, VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice provides individuals and families with choices, control and comfort in their final months. As a leader in healthcare at home and the self-care movement, the agency proudly serves 35 towns in southern Connecticut.
As it has annually, VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice will present Community Partner Awards to three people for 2019.
“We cannot have VNA Community Healthcare & Hospice without the word ‘community,’ and likewise we cannot have success without that critical component,” Fay said. “It is a special moment each year when we have the opportunity to thank our valued partners for all they do to help us realize our goals of promoting and preserving the health, safety, dignity and independence of individuals and families.”
Tickets for the breakfast are $40 each. Tables of 10 are available for $350. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here or call 203-458-4277.
