This Spring fundraiser for the Aurora House Foundation was held on April 22, 2015 at the Knapp Conference Center. It was a great success. Inspiration for the eighth annual Aurora House Administrative Professionals’ Luncheon comes from the 1961 romantic comedy film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” starting Audrey Hepburn.
A sold out event, employers who became sponsors treated their special Administrative Professionals and staff to a delicious luncheon and an elegant atmosphere at Tiffany’s. The event included a catered luncheon with themed decorations, a Spring Style Show staged by Wells of Weslaco and Lionels; a silent auction and fabulous door prizes.
The fundraiser is especially important this year because Aurora House recently added 4 additional patient rooms which allows Aurora House to serve eight patients and families at any given time. With the blessing comes double the need for staffing, and a myriad of additional supplies, utilities and food, etc…
Aurora House does not charge a fee for its patients and it receives no government funding. Aurora House is a Licensed Special Care Facility that provides compassionate end of life care which is provided in a home like atmosphere with clean and comfortable private rooms.
Aurora House provides both the patient and family with companionship, home maker services, and compassionate support.
As a private non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, Aurora House does not receive any form of government funds and relies fully on community donations to provide care for the patients.
Aurora House also relies on the gifts of time and talents from the many volunteers who reach out to serve the patients. They are a much valued asset.
Volunteers help maintain the physical property of AH inside and out. They help prepare meals; assist with laundry and cleaning; visit with patients and are available to assist family members.
