Friends of Home Health Care & Hospice, which helps patients in financial need, needs help of its own. The Friends group wants assistance with its Art and Fashions of Whidbey 2012 fundraiser, set for 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15 at Useless Bay Golf & Country Club, located at 5725 S. Country Club Drive in Langley.

Friends of Home Health Care & Hospice assists Home Health Care & Hospice of Whidbey General Hospital, which has provided in-home services on Whidbey since 1982. Persons in need of services are confined to their homes, have a medically related problem and have an attending physician providing orders for care. Home Health Care services include skilled nursing, occupational, physical and speech therapy, medical social work, spiritual care, visiting volunteers and bereavement follow-up.

The Friends of Home Health Care assists when patients do not have medical insurance or when insurance does not cover all needed services. Friends also provides funding for essential hospice services that are not covered by insurance.

Enjoy work by local artists and fashions from Whidbey stores, as displayed by models of all ages. Also partake in a silent auction and luncheon.

Tickets cost $35 per person and are available at Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce, The Paint Escape in Freeland, Moonraker Books in Langley, Anchor Books and Coffee in Clinton and the Home Health Care & Hospice office in Coupeville. Tickets will not be sold at the door.
