A fashion show and dancing under the stars highlight this year’s “Hospice Evening 2017.”

Themed “Timeless,” the event takes place Jan. 20, 2017, beginning at 7 p.m. at Flagler Museum, 1 Whitehall Way, in Palm Beach.

Benefiting the Hospice Foundation of Palm Beach, the evening will begin with a cocktail reception in the museum’s Grand Hall, followed by a formal fashion show of the Carolina Herrera Spring 2017 Collection presented by grand benefactor Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Beach.

Herrera is an international fashion house recognized for timeless elegance and refinement. After the fashion show, guests will enjoy dinner in the Flagler Kenan Pavilion and dancing under the stars on the waterfront lawn.

Karin Luter and Talbott Maxey will serve as co-chairs. Honorary chairs are Carol Baxter and Mark W. Cook.

“Thanks to all of our dedicated supporters and donors, Hospice Foundation of Palm Beach has been unwavering to the funding of Hospice of Palm Beach County for more than 30 years to ensure that hospice care is always available for you and family when the need arises,” said Cook, president of the hospice membership board.

Proceeds from the event will be used to renovate the hospice patient care rooms at Gerstenberg Center. In the next two years, the board of Hospice Foundation of Palm Beach has committed to donating the $1.8 million required for the renovation of these rooms to ensure patients and their families are given the best possible end-of-life care.

Through fundraising efforts and the dedicated work of its independent volunteer group, Hospice Foundation of Palm Beach provides resources for programs that support end-of-life care for patients and their families.

Tickets to “Hospice Evening 2017” are $750. Junior tickets, for guests 45 and younger, are $400.
