Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care is pleased to announce our 2017 Mother’s Day Luncheon.  At this exciting event, in the tradition of honoring the compassionate women who founded VNHC, we honor the amazing women and mothers in our community. Your support enables VNHC to provide high quality, comprehensive home health, hospice and related services necessary to promote the health and well-being of our friends, neighbors, and loved ones.  These funds also allow us to provide compassionate and trusted care for those who need us most – including those who are unable to pay. 

Each year at this beloved and distinguished luncheon, supporters gather to honor two mothers – one living and one in memory – and to celebrate their lives and contributions to the community.  We are delighted to share that this year our Remembered Mother is Leni Fe Bland and our Honored Mother is Jane Habermann

This year there will be a 3-generation Fashion Show with outstanding outfits from K.Frank.

The luncheon will be held on Friday, May 12 at The Biltmore’s Coral Casino during the noon hour.  We expect a capacity crowd of nearly 350 people.  We hope you will join us for a memorable 16th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon to the Santa Barbara community! 

Formal invitation to follow in April.
