'A Taste of Style' raises funds with fun
By Nisha Patel
From exclusive wine-tasting, exquisite food sampling, and the opportunity to shop in a stylish fashion and accessory marketplace, women can enjoy a fun-filled evening with good company, food, and an entertainment extravaganza. On Thursday, March 14, the St. Rose Hospital Foundation is proud to present its first ever "A Taste of Style" event to benefit Patient Services. At the hospital, patient services can include everything from a simple thermometer to complex medical equipment. Ultimately, the foundation's mission is to help the underserved and/or underinsured members within the community.
Several Bay Area wineries, including, but not limited to, Lone Oak Estate Winery, Peju Province Winery, and J.Lohr Vineyards will provide wine tasting for attendees. Fashion partners - Macy's, Lancome, Heller Jewelers, Walk-In-Closet, Tootsies and Tribez Salon & Spa and many others - will participate in the marketplace. Silent auction items range from wines donated from local wineries to an overnight stay at the Claremont Hotel and Resort complete with a spa package and dinner.
Event sponsors and local dignitaries will participate as models in a fashion show sponsored by Macy's. Upcoming Spring and Summer fashions will be showcased in a peek at the coming seasons' must-have looks. During a live auction, attendees will have the opportunity to bid on dinner at the Hayward Firehouse, a theater getaway weekend to New York City, a cocktail piano-bar party for 24, and a few other surprises.
This is the twelfth year that the St. Rose Hospital Foundation has hosted a women's spring event, but the St. Rose Hospital Foundation is excited about the newly formatted "A Taste of Style" event. "Women's styles and fashions change every year and we created this broader subject so that, as fashion, wine, and fun change through the years, the event will remain relevant," said Executive Director Michael Cobb. "We want to host an evening during which [guests] can help the hospital and at the same time enjoy time with their friends."
Event sponsors currently include Fremont Bank, Macy's, CBS Channel 5, Diablo Magazine, Splurge Catering & Special Events, Diablo Country Club, Nothing Bundt Cakes, R. Zaballos & Sons, Inc., Bay Valley Medical Group Inc., California Cardiovascular Consultants, NORCAL Ambulance, Royal Ambulance, James and Gable Insurance, Minute Man Press in Dublin, Dr. James P.
