Openings available at Agnesian HealthCare Foundation Caring for You at Christmas fund-raiser
The Agnesian HealthCare Foundation is accepting reservations on a first-come, first-serve basis for individuals interested in attending the annual Caring for You at Christmas fund-raiser to support the Carol Hyland Caring for You Fund.
The Agnesian HealthCare Foundation will be sponsoring a special luncheon at the Whispering Springs Golf Club, 380 Whispering Springs Drive, Fond du Lac, on Saturday, December 7. Table viewing will begin at 10:30 a.m. with lunch to be served at 11:30 a.m.
The luncheon features specially-designed tables that participants enjoy over good food and conversation. Cost of the luncheon is $40.
Cancer is physically, emotionally and financially draining. There are the obvious costs: medical bills, co-pays and medications. There are the less-obvious costs, such as increased gas bills caused by frequent trips to and from the doctor’s office. And then there are the other financial concerns: decreased income because your cancer treatments interfere with work, because you’re too sick to work a full day, because your partner takes time off of work to care for you. It’s easy to fall behind.
That’s where the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation’s Carol Hyland Caring for You Fund comes in. The fund was established for families requiring assistance with basic life needs they are unable to afford during cancer treatment, or care for other long-term illnesses. The fund, which was established earlier this year, has already been used to help people make rent, cover utility bills, fill an LP tank and provide gas and grocery cards to families affected by cancer.
If interested in attending the event or to be a table designer, call the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation office at (920) 926-4959.
