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
