Nashville, TN April 11, 2014 — Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today reports they are proud to once again sponsor the Friends & Fashion event. The annual fundraising event is planned and coordinated by the Friends of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt to benefit hospital patients and programs. The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is a freestanding hospital, which is dedicated to serving only children. In its first decade in operation, the hospital has served millions of children and their families from across the country. The expertly-trained staff and state-of-the-art facilities ensure that comprehensive pediatric care is available to everyone. No child is denied care on the basis of limited ability to pay.
“The Friends of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt exists to positively impact and support the patients and families of Children’s Hospital. One of the primary ways we accomplish this goal is through fundraising,” said organization Director, Cindy Comperry. “We sincerely thank Equinox for participating and sponsoring this initiative again this year.”
The event kicks off Sunday, April 13, with “Sundae with Friends,” a behind the scenes look at a professional runway show for mothers and daughters. Next, the “Friends & Fashion” fashion show and silent auction takes place Monday, April 14. Both events are held at the Embassy Suites Cool Springs.
