Haven Hospice hosted “A Roarin’ Good Time” at The Blanche on Saturday. The event, which had more than 180 attendees, benefited Haven’s patients and families.

“A Roarin’ Good Time” was one of the first events held at The Blanche since its recent renovation. The Lake City community arrived in their glitziest 1920s attire for the evening, which included elegant food and beverages, professional dancers and photography, a wine wall fundraiser, costume contest, Charlie Chaplin impersonator and live band. A vintage Rolls Royce was also parked outside as a photo opportunity for guests.

The evening’s program was run by emcee Tyson Johnson and featured speeches by Lake City Medical Center Chief Financial Officer Jill Adams, Lake City Major Stephen Witt, President of Daniel Crapps Agency Daniel Crapps, and Haven Chief Medical Officer Carmelle Elie, M.D.

Sponsors of the event included First Federal Bank, Raymond James – Odom Moses and Company, and The Lake City Medical Center.

“Haven was thrilled to be able to celebrate The Blanche and its historical significance to the community while generating philanthropic support for Haven,” said Haven Vice President of Development Sharon Jones. “We are most grateful to our sponsors and supporters.”

All proceeds from “A Roarin’ Good Time” at The Blanche support unfunded care and services for Haven’s patients and families.
