St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center Foundation: Fashion with Compassion

#HipNJ spoke with Liz Regula, Executive Director of the St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center Foundation, about their new signature fashion event, Fashion with Compassion.

The event, which will be held on March 2 at the beautiful Rockleigh Country Club in Rockleigh, is a step in a different direction for the Foundation, which has held similar events annually. “We decided to rebrand and focus on the fashion aspect of the event,” Regula says.

Guests are in for a treat, with 16 vendors bringing a variety of different fashion items. Vendors include Reve Boutique, ela rae, and South Moon Under. “There will be a wide variety of fun stuff to shop for,” Regula says.

Besides the shopping, guests will be able to participate in dancing, a silent auction, two high end raffles, and a Best Dressed Contest. “Dress to impress,” Regula suggests. The silent auction will feature items including a Gucci handbag and a trip to Turks and Caicos. Raffle prizes will include two packages worth $5,000 or more in merchandise.

Proceeds from this event have always supported St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson, and this year is no exception. This year, funding will be used to support women and children’s services.

The event is expected to raise 150 thousand dollars, which would be a new record, with about 500 guests in attendance. General admission tickets are still available and can be purchased here.

Sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth, Regula says that the mission of St. Joseph’s is “to serve the underserved in our community.” To learn more about St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center Foundation, check out
