    The Rome Hospital Foundation Fashion Show, presented by Mohawk Valley Women’s Health Associates, was held on Friday, May 1st, at the Beeches. The event netted more than $28,000. Event proceeds are used to support women’s health initiatives at Rome Memorial Hospital. Funding will support and enhance program and equipment needs for lymphedema therapy, maternity, prenatal care services, the Woman’s Imaging Center and the Breast Center at Rome Memorial Hospital.

    Fourteen retailers from Rome and the surrounding communities participated in the event showcasing their spring and summer fashions on the runway. Thirty three women, men and children modeled more than 70 different fashions on the runway of the two-set fashion show.

    Dean Shlotzhauer of Oneida Savings Bank emceed the event while Della Pray provided the music for the evening.

    “The work of Rome Hospital Foundation in supporting the mission of Rome Memorial Hospital is incredibly important,” said Gregory Mattacola, Rome Hospital Foundation President. “Not only do our events, such as the Fashion Show, raise much needed funds, but they help to reinforce the importance of supporting our hospital, so quality healthcare will be available for our community residents for years to come.

    The Smart Woman Award was presented to Luella Dunn. Mrs. Dunn has contributed more than 13,170 volunteer hours to Rome Memorial Hospital. “Luella’s commitment to volunteering at Rome Memorial Hospital is unmatched by anyone. I am confident that the members of our community will share our excitement in recognizing Luella for her efforts,” said Gretchen Sprock, 2nd Vice President of Rome Hospital Foundation. “Luella has helped to strengthen our community with her dedication of time and energy to our hospital. She is undoubtedly deserving of this year’s Smart Woman Award.” The Smart Woman Award was developed to recognize outstanding women who give of themselves to help improve our community.

    Rome Hospital Foundation will host three additional events in 2015: the Annual Golf Classic on Monday, June 22nd; the Brew Ha Ha craft beer tasting on Saturday, September 19th; and the Annual Gala on Saturday, November 14th.
