Hopes honored at fashion show

“Thanks for the memories” is the theme of the annual luncheon and

fashion show presented by Providence St. Joseph Medical Center

Guild, honoring Dolores and Bob Hope, on March 15 in the Grand


Ballroom of the Sheraton Universal Hotel.

Festivities begin at 10:30 a.m. with a boutique featuring jewelry,

handbags, tableware and other items. Carin Holmenas is producing the

fashion show featuring fashions by Robert Ellis of Studio City.


There will be a special $10,000 grand-prize drawing. Only 250

tickets at $100 each will be sold. Tickets can be purchased in

advance at the Medical Center Gift Gallery or at the event.

This is the guild’s major fund-raiser. Proceeds go to the guild’s

pledge of $267,000 for a High Dose Rate Brachytherapy Device for

Radiation Oncology. This is a computerized radiation source that

pinpoints the tumor during the treatment and with minimal effect to

the surrounding tissue.


In the past, the guild has made donations to the emergency room,

the construction of the Comprehensive Cancer Center, the support of

the Chemical Dependency Program and to the purchase of new anesthesia


This latest pledge presents the guild with an opportunity to help

make the medical center the choice for cancer care far into the 21st
