Ladybug House is in the spotlight at Salty's on Alki, May 23, for our Tuesday Tune-Up fundraiser with live tunes by Piano-man and Emcee Victor Janusz with Medearis "MD" Dixson on saxophone. You're invited to join us and help this new non-profit! Enter a raffle for a chance to win a gift basket from Ladybug House! Here's why you need to help:
As a new nonprofit, the goal of Ladybug House will be to build and operate a freestanding community-based Palliative Care Home based in Seattle. They will offer free end-of-life care to children and young adults with life-limiting illnesses and support for their families in a homelike setting. An interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, support staff and volunteers, they want to provide 24/7 care and support.
Founder Suzanne Gwynn, a registered nurse in Seattle, has worked intensely with children and young adults and their families in oncology and hospice care for over 30 years. Watching families live with the unimaginable day after day compelled her to dream of a palliative care home; a safe place for them to land. She will call this place Ladybug House. They need your support in creating this new non-profit organization. Participate by becoming a partner or volunteer or simply join us at Salty's on Alki Beach on Tuesday, May 23. Suzanne would love to share her story with you.
Please join us at Salty's on Alki Cafe-Bar on Tuesday, May 23, 2017, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Come early for Salty's extended Happy Hour Menu from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m. (happy hour usually runs 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.) There is no cover charge but donations are gratefully accepted.
