‘Handbags for Hospice’ coming to Martinsville!
Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care will hold its biannual "Handbags for Hospice" auction on Thursday, October 20, from 6 to 9 p.m. The auction will feature purses donated by such luminaries as former Miss America Lee Meriwether ("Barnaby Jones", "Batman"), Dana Delaney ("Body of Proof"), Anna Wood (star of the new USA Network series "Falling Water"), humorist Jeanne Robertson, and several local television personalities.
"In addition to handbags, we'll also feature lots of items for the entire family, such as a signed football by Carolina Panther Greg Olsen, and a number of stock car racing items too," said Brett Willis, Director of Development for Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care. "It will be a great night to start your holiday shopping!"
"While we welcome everyone across our entire service region, we are especially excited to host this year's event in Martinsville," continued Willis. "Since opening our office there earlier this year, the city's residents have offered tremendous support. We look forward to getting to know more of the community at this gala."
Tickets to "Handbags for Hospice" may be purchased by calling Mountain Valley Hospice's Martinsville office at 276-403-4764. All proceeds will support patient care. Admission is $20 per person, and that includes heavy hors d'oeuvres, wine or beer, and live entertainment. The event will be held at Piedmont Arts, 215 Starling Avenue, Martinsville, NC 24112.
