Join #HipNJ at Fashion with Compassion!

The St. Joseph’s Health Foundation is holding their third annual Fashion With Compassion to benefit The St. Joseph’s Health Children’s Hospital on April 4, 2019 at Rockleigh Country Club in Rockleigh, NJ!

This event is one of #HipNJ‘s favorites every spring (click here to watch our coverage from last year’s event!) Guests will enjoy an evening of sipping, shopping and mingling with fabulous foods, fine wines and a marketplace of fashion-forward vendors. During the event’s silent auction, guests will be able to bid on items worn on Real Housewives of New Jersey by cast members  Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs. In addition, there will be dancing, a high end raffle, and more for all the fashionistas in attendance!

Fashion with Compassion co-chairs, Maryanne Puccio and Donna DeCandido, spoke to Steve Adubato about why others should join them in their support of St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital.

“It’s a fun night to get dressed up, grab your friends and help the children at St. Joseph’s Health,” explained Donna.

“We have a whole marketplace and there is just beautiful things– from handbags to scarves to jewelry,” added Maryanne. “Our goal is to raise $200,000 for the children and families that are part of the St. Joseph’s Health family.”

A component of St. Joseph’s Health, St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is a state-designated acute care specialized children’s hospital located at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center, on the System’s main campus in Paterson, New Jersey. Renowned for its leading edge technology and compassionate “patients first” approach to service excellence, the Children’s Hospital provides specialized health care services designed especially for children from birth to age 21. Proceeds from the event will provide important funding to the life-saving and life-changing services for the children of St. Joseph’s Health.
