5th Year for 'Pot of Gold' for Visiting Nurses

Nursing Jobs By State

At the end of September, the Visiting Nurse and Community Health (VNCH) group issued a press release for their "Pot of Gold" fund raiser. The event will be to benefit visiting nurses.

Spicing up the typically imagined fund raising event, Pot of Gold features a game of chance for a big prize. As VNCH describes it:
"Tickets are $100 each and only 200 tickets will be sold! At 7:00pm, the first number will be pulled from a drum. Throughout the evening, numbers will continue to be pulled until, by process of elimination, only 10 ticket numbers remain. Each of the remaining 10 ticket holders, or their representatives, will be asked if they want to split the $10,000, or continue drawing numbers. If any finalist feels lucky and chooses to go for the gold, the process continues until only one grand prize winner remains, or the finalists agree to split the pot. It certainly will be nail biting!"

Additionally, all ticket-holders will be in a drawing for other prizes throughout the night, including a pair of Bruin's tickets. There will be a buffet provided by Blue Ribbon BBQ and a cash bar. A third feature of this event will be a silent auction for items including Celtics and Red Sox tickets, hotel stays, restaurant gift certificates, handcrafted jewelry, a catered Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey dinner for 10, Sam Adams "beer for a year", and an after-work pool party at Jillian's in Boston.

This is the fifth year that the VNCH has held its Pot of Gold fundraiser. All proceeds from the evening go to Visiting Nurse and Community Health, a non-profit agency located on Broadway in Arlington, MA. In the press release, VNCH reports being "very appreciative of the support they receive for this event, as it is a major resource for them to continue their work and mission of caring for those within 22 communities who need services. Allowing patients to stay in the comfort of their own homes while receiving services has a great impact on people?s lives and increases the chance for a positive clinical outcome while allowing peace of mind. VNCH?s Hospice Care program is also making a difference for many, as families and caregivers are aided in compassionately caring for their loved one in his/her home environment while retaining personal dignity through end of life."

The fund raiser will be held on November 4, 2010 at 6:30pm at the Sons of Italy Hall in Arlington. VNCH serves the following communities: Arlington, Bedford, Belmont, Billerica, Burlington, Cambridge, Carlisle, Concord, Everett, Lexington, Lincoln, Malden, Medford, Melrose, Somerville, Stoneham, Wakefield, Waltham, Watertown, Wilmington, Winchester, and Woburn.
