April 22, 2009Hospital Auxiliary Hosting Informational Tea with Live Entertainment
The Franklin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is hosting a Tea at Four Party on Wednesday, April 29, from 4-5:30 p.m. in the hospital’s Bass Room. The tea, which is free and open to the public, will include a keynote speaker, information sharing about the Auxiliary and how it benefits the hospital, and live entertainment.
“The primary purpose of the tea is to attract new members to the Auxiliary, a vibrant and active organization that plans activities and special events, which raises thousands of dollars annually to support technology and programs at Franklin Memorial Hospital,” said Maureen Goudreau, Foundation Director. “This worthy organization also provides annual scholarships to support education for students pursuing careers in the health care field.”
The tea will begin with refreshments and a piano interlude by Dr. David Dixon. Then at 4:30 p.m., Dr. David Hyde will discuss the hospitalist program. At 5 p.m. Doug and Sherry Walrath will perform an old time sing-a-long of hits from the 40s and 50s.
Also happening that day in the hospital lobby is a Bag Ali sale, a fundraiser for the Auxiliary, which features a fabulous collection of handbags and accessories.
The hospital’s gift shop is the Auxiliary’s major fundraiser in its mission to provide financial support by purchasing equipment that the hospital would like to have, but cannot fit into its budget. The Auxiliary also raises money by way of membership dues, raffles, silent teas, food sales, special events, and the Remembrance Tree during the holidays.
