San Francisco, California (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
Bridge players are invited to team up on March 12, 2013 for Bridge to Caring 2013 at the Metropolitan Club, 640 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94102. A benefit for Pathways Hospice, Bridge to Caring 2013 offers several options for attending, including an afternoon of bridge, an exclusive dinner with author, Laney Salisbury, and a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception followed by a talk by the author.
Bridge will begin at 3 pm. Dinner with Laney Salisbury will be at 5:30 pm. The wine and hors d’oeuvres reception will start at 6:30, followed by Ms. Salisbury’s presentation at 7:30 and a book signing at 8:30 pm.
Ticket packages range from $100-400 each, depending on the options selected. Individuals who only play bridge can join for $100 each. Players who also want to attend the hors d’oeuvres reception and presentation by Laney Salisbury pay $250 each. To play bridge, attend an exclusive dinner with the author, dessert at the reception, and the author presentation, individuals pay $400 each. Single seats are available for all options.
The featured speaker, Laney Salisbury, is the national best-selling author of Provenance: How a Con Man and a Forger Rewrote the History of Modern Art. In Provenance, Laney and co-author Aly Sujo, her late husband, traced the astonishing story of how con man, John Drewe, and his artist accomplice, John Myatt, forever changed the art world. Aly passed away just as the manuscript for Provenance was finished. The book received wide acclaim and was included on Oprah’s Summer Reading List for 2009.
Proceeds from the 2013 Bridge to Caring will benefit the Dream Team, Pathways 24/7 on-call nursing team. When Pathways Hospice patients and families need help at night, on weekends, and during holidays, it is just a phone call away. If a visit seems necessary, a nurse is dispatched directly to the home to assess the situation, address medical issues, and assure the patient's comfort and safety. The Dream Team enables Pathways to respond to a patient's symptoms quickly and often helps the patient avoid emergency room visits and hospitalization.
