Tickets now on sale for Hope Hospice fundraiser at Harborside Event Center in April

Hope HealthCare Services hosts its fifth annual Celebration of Women on Thursday, April 26, at Harborside Event Center in downtown Fort Myers with the 2012 theme, “Broadway Meets Fifth Avenue.”

The event – which draws a sold-out crowd for one of the most celebrated social luncheons of the year – showcases fashion trends from Saks Fifth Avenue and Southwest Florida’s finest boutiques,. This year’s show is accompanied by Broadway performances infused with show tunes performed by national touring artist Mark Sanders and pianist Lee Van Asten.

Individual tickets for Celebration of Women are again priced at only $55 this year. Doors open at 11 a.m. with a champagne reception, silent auction and boutique-style shopping, followed by lunch and the highly anticipated fashion show.

Nearly 1,000 guests are expected. A variety of vendors will donate a portion of their proceeds to Hope Hospice, and event guests can participate in a silent auction and raffle for high-end prizes.

Proceeds from the event benefit Hope Hospice, with a special focus on Hope Kids Care for children with serious illnesses, grieving a loss or at end-of-life. Through its Kids Care programs, Hope provides developmentally appropriate services to infants, children and adolescents with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Tables for eight guests are available for $550; event sponsorships are available from $1,000 to $10,000. Valet parking is available at Harborside Event Center throughout the event.
