Our annual LHAS (Ladies Hospital Aid Society) Fall Luncheon, One Handbag at a Time, is one of our signature fundraising events and will be held on Wednesday, November 20, 2013, at LeMont Restaurant.  More than 200 individuals attended this event in 2012, and more than $15,000 was raised for the Orchid Fund.

This year, the proceeds from this luncheon will benefit our Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention program, which partners with the Demi Brae Cuccina Awareness Organization.  With the help of corporate sponsors, our program has been shared with over 55,000 students in 50 schools, and more than 20,000 xoshove≠trulove (kiss, hug, shove does not equal true love) signature t-shirts have been distributed.  This program includes Demi’s Story and keynote presentation by her father, Dr. Gary Cuccia, distribution of signature t-shirts, wristbands, and resources for teens and parents seeking professional help.

LHAS has been a community partner for over 115 years and through its fundraising efforts has contributed over $15,000,000 in educational, financial, medical, and social services to individuals and families.  With your support, we can continue educating teens and their parents regarding healthy vs. unhealthy relationships and possibly save a life!
