RAHWAY—“RWJUH Rahway Foundation’s Fashion Show Committee is busy planning its 19th annual event” said Peggy Ann Nicora, Fashion Show Committee chairman, adding that the committee invites community members to join with them, board members, physicians and hospital staff on Saturday, Nov. 1 at The Bridgewater Marriott.
Proceeds from the Fashion Show will benefit the Fund for Technology Advancements and the programs, services and facilities of RWJUH Rahway. “RWJUH Rahway needs to upgrade its technology, equipment and improve its hospital facilities. The foundation’s special events will assist in funding the $6 million state-of-the-art hospital technology, equipment, and facility upgrade initiatives,” said Foundation President Marlene H. Lubinber. Through the years, the Fashion Show Committee has raised more than $450,000 to benefit the hospital.
Guests will have the opportunity to win an assortment of outstanding gifts at the boutique auction, featuring more than 100 beautiful gift baskets and items all donated by local merchants, community members and hospital staff. A luncheon and fashion show featuring a selection of designer fashions by Journey Productions will follow. The cost is $60 per person.
In addition to a 50/50 raffle, the afternoon will conclude with the drawing for the super raffle. The lucky first prize winner will receive a 14 kt. yellow gold necklace with 13 diamonds, donated by Kennedy Jewelers. Second prize is a Baccarat crystal vase; and third prize is overnight accommodations for two with dinner and breakfast at The Bridgewater Marriott.
