Summer Jubilee, a fundraiser for Tulare Hospital Foundation will be held Saturday, August 23, at Kumar/Gupta Tulare Estate. The event is presented by Katye and Manuel Mancebo. Major sponsors include Healthcare Conglomerate Associates and Kluger Architects. The generosity of 50-plus sponsors puts this year’s event on track to raise more than $100,000.
Proceeds are used to enhance medical services and patient care at Tulare Regional Medical Center. Last month, Tulare Hospital Foundation purchased patient beds for the Intensive Care Unit. The eight beds, specifically designed for the unpredictable and urgent needs of patients in the Intensive Care Unit, cost the Foundation nearly $93,000.
“Improving our hospital is why the foundation was established more than 25 years ago,” said Mary Jane Barwick, Tulare Hospital Foundation chairman. “I am very excited we have such a committed and talented group of volunteers.”
The volunteer planning committee, co-chaired by Eric Ferreira and Scott Daley, has created a one-of-a-kind event. “Hollywood Glam,” the event theme, is the committee’s version of Hollywood’s last party of the summer – where jubilee guests are the “stars.”
An estimated 1,000 attendees will be treated to tastes from more than 40 featured restaurants, wineries, breweries and distributors from 7-9pm. Guests can also participate in bidding on silent auction items and purchase raffle tickets for an opportunity to win jewelry donated by Quality Jewelers. After the tasting, the casino-style gaming begins, including video horse racing and dancing to the DJ Sounds of Sparkee Markee.
Individual tickets are $50 and available at www.TulareRegional.org/SummerJubilee or by calling 685-3448.
