NEWPORT, Ore., April 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- When the Samaritan Pacific Hospital Foundation's response to cutbacks for community sponsorships meant no annual spring fashion show fundraiser, West Coast Bank decided to take it on.
Newport Main Branch Manager-Vice President Julie Hanrahan, also a Samaritan Pacific Hospital Foundation Board member, determined that the ladies of West Coast Bank could serve the community by organizing the A Paris Stroll Fashion Show to benefit the Pacific Communities Health District Foundation's Women's Cancer Fund. She chaired the committee, which included most of her branch staff and other West Coast Bank employees, many of whom will also model for the event.
Coast District Manager David Green said, "West Coast Bank is committed to the communities we serve and our employees won't be deterred by a recession. Their creativity and determination will make the cancer fundraiser this year even more meaningful."
A Paris Stroll Fashion Show will be held, Thursday, May 28, 6:00 p.m. at the Best Western Agate Beach Inn, 3019 North Coast Highway in Newport. All proceeds will benefit the Pacific Communities Health District Foundation's Women's Cancer Fund, which provides financial assistance to women in need.
