“These are only the highlights of the terrific silent auction items our committee has secured to benefit Hope Hospice,” said Co-Chair Donna Roberts. “Over the years, the Hearts of Hope event has become known for our unique auction items, so we always want to deliver special packages for our bidders.”


Auction Chair Etta Smith also has secured a girls’ weekend in Chicago plus a Gucci purse for the lucky winner of one Garden Party Raffle, a special giving opportunity to benefit the children’s programs at Hope. A second raffle will feature a custom piece of jewelry for the Garden Party created exclusively by Mark Loren Designs. Raffle tickets are available for purchase now at www.HopeHospice.org/HeartsRaffle.


“We always try to find ways that every individual can participate and support Hope Hospice,” said Smith. “So whether our guests bid on a visit to the Canyon Ranch Spa, an overseas adventure or purchase a raffle ticket for the special giving opportunity, they’ll know they are supporting important programs in our community through Hope.”


Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope HealthCare Services, said, “The Women’s Committee has been such a wonderful partner for Joanne’s House in Bonita Springs. Every year, they raise the bar higher and higher for their events to ensure that families in the Bonita Springs area receive the care, services and programs they need. We’re so grateful for their efforts,” Beckwith said.
