The Social Butterfly
Hospice Promises An Evening You
Hospice Promises An Evening
You'll Never Remember!
A unique party is being
planned by The Elizabeth Hospice; it is a no-party party, and you are invited to
the "Non-Party Mystery Ball." It will be held on Saturday, the Twelfth of
Never, at Shangri-La,
Fantasy Island. There is
no need to get out the tux or ball gown, just stay home, put your feet up and
enjoy a quiet evening in the comfort of your own home. At 6pm there will be no
cocktail or silent auction; at 7:30pm no dinner or entertainment; no live
auction or opportunity drawings; and The Phantom will serve as the Master of
Ceremonies. Black Tie is Not Optional, and No RSVP is Necessary!
The good news is The
Elizabeth Hospice is caring for more patients and families than ever, and the
support programs for the community have expanded to meet this growing need. So,
with your generous support, they will continue to provide the best in
compassionate care to those needing it the most -- the dying and the grieving.
You can save money by not
attending this "No-Party." However, by doing so, The Elizabeth Hospice would
like you to remember the work they do and support them with your donations
(money you've saved by not attending a big party). Tax deductible donations can
be sent to them at
150 West Crest Street,
Escondido, 92025. For additional information, call them at 737-2050.
