20 May Event Video : Wine, Women & Shoes 5th Annual Ladies Night Out.
Please enjoy this video of Project Ladybug’s Wine, Women & Shoes 5th Annual Ladies Night Out held at the Brownstone in Paterson, NJ. Dina Manzo, formerly of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, founded Project Ladybug and hosted an event full of love, support and entertainment. Vendors, Celebs, family and friends came to support a great cause and charity to help St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital.
Project Ladybug provides assistance to young children and their families while they are receiving treatment for serious and life-threatening illnesses at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson, NJ. Project Ladybug funding is used to provide direct program support, to purchase toys, games, and computers for entertainment and treatment incentives, to provide special therapies such as art, and other entertainments to ease the minds of young patients while they undergo painful or stressful treatment regimens. Project Ladybug also sends young patients and their families to special trips such as sporting events, local attractions, theme parks, restaurants, and other morale-boosting activities to attempt to improve attitudes and outcomes.
Project Ladybug has hosted two Spa Days to provide the mothers of children being treated at St. Joseph’s with a much-needed day of pampering. The group has also provided in-kind donations of party supplies, gifts, food, entertainment, and volunteers to make birthday and holiday celebrations special. Project Ladybug holds fundraisers throughout the year to raise money from the members’ local communities. Proceeds from all of Project Ladybug’s events and activities are directed to the Project Ladybug Fund at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital.
In additional to the ongoing activities listed above, proceeds from Ladies Night Out have been used to fund a complete refurbishment of a treatment room for Pediatric Hem/Onc patients to make their experience more pleasant and child-friendly, and to fund the creation of a rooftop playground area to provide much-needed space for children and their families to enjoy fresh air and physical activity.
Please enjoy this video and special thanks to all of the sponsors of this event.
