Fiesta will benefit Barton hospice programs

The Barton Hospital Foundation is inviting the public to a fiesta Saturday at the Tomerlin barn as a fund-raiser for the hospice programs in the Valley and the Lake.

Tickets are $60 per person with a $35 tax deduction.

The evening begins at 5 p.m. the Tomerlins’ new barn just off Foothill Road in Gardnerville. Guests will enjoy a traditional Mexican dinner and beverages and authentic entertainment.

“We invite you to enjoy watching, learning and participating in the Salsa dance techniques that have become so popular or join in the singing with our authentic entertainers,” said Linda Thompson, executive director of the foundation.

“Pinatas, colorful decorations and Mexican charms will help set the mood for a fiesta right here in Gardnerville. Additional activities are planned to keep the party mood rolling and the socializing at its best. If you’ve lived in the area for a while, you’ll see old friends and neighbors. If you are new to the area, this is a great opportunity to meet some wonderful people in your own backyard,” she said.

The hospice program reaches out to families and their patients faced with terminal illness.

“Any family who has had the caring, comforting and professional contact with our hospice staff and volunteers knows the value of the program,” Thompson said. “In times of greatest stress and concern, hospice steps in to assist families with difficult decisions, provide support and direction and make the final stages of life for our patients as good as possibly can be.”

People who cannot attend the fiesta are invited to mail their tax-deductible contribution to Barton Hospital Foundation, in care of Hospice, 2489 Lake Tahoe Blvd., Suite 8, South Lake Tahoe, Calif. 96150.
