Hinsdale – Hinsdale Hospital Foundation board member Lisa Hutcherson is the “driving force” behind an upcoming fashion show at Continental AutoSport’s Maserati showroom in October. This evening of fine fashion and fast cars at the showroom at 420 E. Ogden Ave. will benefit the new cancer center being built for patients of Adventist Hinsdale Hospital and Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital. The foundation has committed to raising $11 million toward this state-of-the-art facility, which will open in 2014.
The foundation’s “fashionistas” are launching this inaugural campaign event to ensure top notch cancer care is easily accessible.
“Promoting whole-person care from some of the best physicians in the region and even the country is an achievement to celebrate,” said Hutcherson. “We are excited about the opportunity to team up with such great partners. Breast cancer is an ever-growing concern and we want our families and friends to know we support them.”
The runway opens at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 24. Fashion products will be provided by Zzaaz Productions.
On Oct. 4, Hinsdale Imaging Center will host the inaugural “40 for 40” event, where free screening mammograms will be given to 40 women over the age of 40 who have no health insurance and can’t afford this life saving test. Funding for this free screening was made possible through the Hinsdale Hospital Foundation’s Open Arms Fund.
