Virginia Hospital Center’s Lifeline to hold fundraiser on May 28
For the past 20 years, Virginia Hospital Center’s Lifeline program has helped seniors and others with serious medical problems to live at home more safely. With the touch of a Lifeline button worn on either a bracelet or necklace, subscribers are quickly connected to a highly trained response associate who has instant access to his or her health history and can facilitate immediate and appropriate assistance. In many emergencies, getting help quickly is imperative for optimum treatment and recovery.
The Virginia Hospital Center Lifeline team oversees service to more than 800 vulnerable seniors in Arlington County, Fairfax County, the City of Falls Church, the City of Alexandria and Northwest D.C.
Unfortunately, many of our “at-risk” community members are unable to afford the $42.00 monthly service fee. With this in mind, the Virginia Hospital Center Foundation established the Lifeline Scholarship Fund to help those “in-need” remain in their homes with confidence and safety. To kick-off fundraising for the Lifeline Scholarship Fund, we are hosting an evening of fun, friends and philanthropy.
The event will be held on Thursday, May 28, from 4:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery at the Ballston Mall, located at 4238 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA.
