Ladies' group donated $3,450 from holiday fundraisers.

The Rose Colored Lasses raised $3,450 for the Delaware Hospice Center in Milford during the holiday season.

On Dec. 8, the Rose Colored Lasses held the ninth annual Christmas House Tour to raise money for the Delaware Hospice Center. Visitors were given house tours through several decorated homes in the Milford area, including the Parson Thorne Mansion. The night ended with wine and appetizers at the Delaware Hospice Center.

Delaware Hospice would like to thank the following organizations for their donations to that event: A Latte Soul, Applebee's of Milford, Abbott's Grill, Nage, Panificio Di Canevari and Meding's Seafood.

Through its 12-year history, The Rose Colored Lasses has organized and executed a variety of events to help support organizations such as the Delaware Hospice Center, American Cancer Society, Home of the Brave Women’s Facility and KenCrest Group Home.

“This is gratifying work because Delaware Hospice provides a comfortable place for people when they need it,” said Dee Greenlee, member of The Rose Colored Lasses and House Tour chair. “All I have to do is mention that the event is for Delaware Hospice and individuals and organizations generously give because so many have been touched by their services.”

Debbie Taylor, clinical supervisor of inpatient services at Delaware Hospice Center, said, “The Rose Colored Lasses have been a great community partner to work with over the years, and their collaboration has afforded many opportunities for our patients and families. This year’s donation of $3,450 will help us complete our purchase of new love seats for each of our patients’ rooms. The Delaware Hospice Center is very appreciative of all the local support and, it is always a pleasure to work with the Lasses.”
