A Warm Thank You

On Tuesday, April 15th, we held a fundraiser for Claudia Kronenberg Douty and her family at the Rose and Crown. The event once again showed just how much support there is in our tiny community when one of us is in need. Claudia had been fighting breast cancer gracefully for a few years, and her recent passing shocked us all. She was a generous and kind woman, a mother to 3 smart children, a wife, a sister, and a successful photographer on Nantucket. We want to thank everyone who participated and donated.

April Event, PASCON Fundraiser

Please join us Tuesday, April 15th at the Rose & Crown from 7-10pm.

We are holding a fundraiser for PASCON, Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket, which is “a specialized health care program dedicated to providing excellent physical, psychological, social, and spiritual care for persons with life-threatening illness and their families”. This is an organization which is helping our loved ones, and may help any one of us at any time. It’s a great cause.

If you would like to donate to our silent auction, please contact Zofia at info@petticoatrow.com.

To help spread the word, share this post, like us on Facebook and share the event poster. Thank you!

 

***UPDATE***
Our April 15th PASCON event was quickly converted to an fundraising silent auction to raise money for Claudia Kronenberg Douty and her family, as she had fallen ill and has since passed. We appreciate all the support the community gave for this turn, the event, and the family. Thank you.
