Visiting Nurse Services of Connecticut, a non-profit provider of healthcare at home and hospice care services for residents of Fairfield, New Haven and Litchfield counties, will hold its 15th annual Clambake fundraiser to support services for in-need patients on Thursday, June 9, from 6:30-9:30 p.m., at the Costa-Azzurra Restaurant, 72 Broadway, Milford.
Chairpersons for this year’s event are Karen Mercer of Trumbull and Patty Merola of Milford. All proceeds from the Clambake fundraising event benefit VNS’ Medically Underserved and Hospice at Home™ programs, which provide compassionate home care and comfort for 2,000 in-need individuals and families who may not have other home health care options.
The event will feature a choice of entrees for dinner, beverages, including wine, as well as a silent auction and raffle. First Mate attendance tickets are available at $90 per person. The agency also is seeking donations and gift contributions for the silent auction portion of the event. Contributors will be acknowledged in the event program book, social media and in the VNS employee newsletter for the agency’s 500 staff members.
