Employees model fashions at Bridgeport Hospital Auxiliary event

Friday, November 22, 2013

Several hospital employees modeled the latest fall fashions from local boutiques during the Nov. 7 Bridgeport Hospital Auxiliary fundraiser, “Shopping by the Shore,” at the Black Rock Yacht Club. Proceeds from the event, which are still being tabulated, will support nursing education, the Dr. Tom Kennedy Toy Closet and other hospital programs.

“We are so grateful to the 175 people who attended and supported our fashion show and to the hospital employees who served as our fashion models,” said Auxiliary President Ulla Atweh of Westport. “And special thanks go to event chair Nina King of Fairfield, assisted by Amparo Castillo of Monroe, for organizing a sensational event.”

Fashions for the show were provided by Chico’s and Snappy Gator of Fairfield.

Since it was established in 1959, the 400-member Bridgeport Hospital Auxiliary has donated more than $4 million to Bridgeport Hospital facility improvements, equipment purchases, nursing scholarships and other projects.

The Auxiliary sponsors a variety of fundraising activities throughout the year and operates the hospital gift shop, profits from which are donated to the hospital. Many Auxiliary members are also active volunteers who contribute their time and energy in patient care and support areas of the hospital.
