Arlington, MA – September 15, 2011 – Visiting Nurse and Community Health (VNCH) is holding its 6th annual “Pot of Gold” fundraiser on Thursday, October 27 at 6:30 pm at the Sons of Italy Hall, 19 Prentiss Road.  The “Pot of Gold” is a fun-filled evening where participants have the chance to walk away with $10,000!  A delicious buffet will be provided to all guests, and a cash bar will also be available.

Tickets are $100 each and only 200 tickets will be sold!  At 7 pm, 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 will be a definite nail-biter!  

All ticketholders will be eligible to win prizes during the night as the event works its way up to the grand prize winner(s) of the Pot of Gold!  One extra lucky winner will have the added thrill of going home with a pair of Bruin’s tickets – just for participating in the festivities!  As part of the evening, there will be a silent auction, which includes great items such as 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, to name a few.

Harry Allen of Arlmont Fuel will be the MC for the evening.  Committee members include Bob Bowes (Bowes Real Estate), Kathleen Darcy (Cambridge Savings Bank), and Tim Haley (North Shore Navigators Baseball).

Proceeds from the evening will benefit Visiting Nurse and Community Health, a non-profit agency that serves 28 cities and towns throughout eastern Massachusetts.  VNCH is very appreciative of the support it receives for this event, which is a major resource that allows the agency to continue its work and mission of providing the highest quality home health care available.  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.  

You can purchase your “Pot of Gold” tickets and get in on the action by contacting Meredith Lambroff at 781-643-6090, ext. 1322, emailing her at MLambroff@TheVisitingNurses.com, or by visiting our website at www.TheVisitingNurses.com.  Buy one for yourself or chip in with a group to purchase a ticket or two! Increasing your odds is a great way to cash in on a “Pot of Gold” that could come in very handy before the holidays!
