In the tradition of honoring the compassionate women who founded VNHC, we honor the amazing women
and mothers in our community at this heartwarming event. Your contribution will ensure that Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care
will continue to be a vital source of peace and comfort to our community, especially during times of significant crisis and tragedy.
As our community rebuilds from the Thomas Fire and the Montecito Mudslides, your support will enable VNHC to continue
its care 
and service of patients in their homes, wherever home may be.

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 our community.
We are extremely delighted to share that this year that our Remembered Mother is Sally Fordyce
and that our Honored Mother is Jelinda DeVorzon.

Produced by Pamela Dillman Haskell, this year there will be a Teen-Parent Fashion Show
with outstanding outfits from K.Frank and other dancewear fashions.

We expect a capacity crowd of 350 people. We hope you will join us for a memorable
