Over 145 attendees at the Spring Bling event hosted by the Haven Hospice Alliance raised over $5,000 for Haven Hospice patients and families. One generous supporter purchased $400 in jewelry. Attendees shopped from a selection of upscale, gently-used jackets, purses and jewelry while enjoying desserts donated by Celebrations Catering and gourmet chocolates donated by Simply Delightful Confections. Among the treasures were a real pearl necklace and handbags from Coach and Prada.
Items were specially chosen from the Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store by members of the Alliance which is a volunteer group that raises funds for Haven Hospice while educating the community about the programs and services Haven provides throughout its 18-county service area.
All proceeds will benefit the unreimbursed programs and services provided by Haven Hospice to the patients and families in Gainesville and the surrounding communities.
