What do the parties support?
Donations to Summer Nights make a difference each and every day in the lives of our patients and their families. Gifts support caregivers during challenging times, offer comfort to those living with life-limiting illnesses, and ensure that the bereaved need not face loss alone. We are able to honor the patriotic service of veterans in our care, keep beloved pets together with our patients, provide massage therapy, music therapy and story keeping, and offer many other special “extras’ not covered by Medicare or insurance.
Guests will receive a letter from our Foundation thanking them for their tax-deductible donation.
Hosts will receive a letter from our Foundation thanking them for their gift-in-kind donation and a special gift will be provided for their party.
What if I’m uncomfortable asking my guests for donations?
You don’t have to! Donation cards will be inserted inside your guests’ invitations. They can be sent privately to our Foundation in the return envelope provided.
How do I get printed invitations?
Attractive invitations will be provided; Our Foundation staff can even complete them, address them and mail them if that helps you.
What if I have more questions?
Come to our host planning event to get lots of ideas and help if you think you may be interested in having a party, brunch, picnic, dinner or other event on our behalf!
