“Last Chance for White Pants” to Support VNA Hospice Center

rot1This is it! Your “Last Chance for White Pants” for the season at a fun new event sponsored by the Visiting Nurse Association of NWI.

This summer casual event (white pants are optional!) will feature a gourmet dinner, open bar, live music featuring The Unit, and dancing, as well as the opportunity to bid on some special live and silent auction items. Last Chance for White Pants will be held at the Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City on Saturday, September 30th from 6 pm until 11pm. Tickets are $125 per person and are available online at www.vnanwi.org/latest-events or by calling 219-531-8078.

Proceeds from the event will support renovations and improvements at the Arthur B. and Ethel V. Horton VNA Hospice Center. Since opening in 2002, the VNA Hospice Center has provided compassionate comfort and care to more than 5,000 patients and their families. “Over the last 15 years, we’ve seen some wear and tear at the hospice center. And we’ve also seen some changes in patient and family needs,” says Last Chance for White Pants Chair and VNA Board Member Cindy Kaariainen Tougaw. “This is a great opportunity for those touched by hospice to support the VNA Hospice Center AND have a great time!”

Urschel Laboratories is this year’s Presenting Sponsor. “It’s thanks to generous community support that the VNA is able to provide inpatient hospice care,” says Ann O’Heir, VNA President and CEO. “The VNA of NWI is one of the few remaining free standing, non-profit hospice organizations with a general inpatient hospice center in Indiana. And that’s a great testament to our generous community.”

Platinum Sponsors are MacLennan and Bain Insurance and Doug and Jackie Watkins with Thrivent Financial. Gold Sponsor is Wells Fargo Advisors.
