FAIRMONT, Minn. — The Ladies First event in Fairmont, held Sept. 29, was a major success, raising money for local hospice services and delighting the 155 women in attendance. The event — which was hosted by Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont — garnered $17,257, all of which will support end-of-life care patients in Fairmont.
Special guest speaker Deadra Stanton delivered an uproarious and uplifting message on life lessons; Russ Steele, Mayo Clinic Health System social worker, provided an informative presentation on hospice; and attendees enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, desserts and cocktails. Prizes, a raffle and a silent auction were featured as well.
“The Ladies First Fundraiser for Mayo Hospice was well attended. Our guest speaker, Deadra Stanton, was phenomenal. Thanks to our sponsors and businesses that helped make this night a success,” says Bridget Blue, Ladies First event chair.
Ladies first is scheduled to return to Fairmont at some point in 2018.
