Saint Mary’s Foundation
Saint Mary’s Foundation supports mission outreach programs for the underserved and the most vulnerable members of our community including programs for children, seniors and families. The R&R Foundation provides advertising and event support for the Saint Mary’s Foundation especially its annual fundraising gala, which raised $850,000 in 2010. The funds are used to support Saint Mary’s Hospice, the only nonprofit hospice program in Northern Nevada which serves over 800 patients per year. Another important recent event was “Angels In Our Midst,” the foundation’s tribute to Saint Mary’s Hospice work for children and adults.
R&R helps the Saint Mary’s Hospice staff bring to life the touching stories of those who have benefitted from their humane and caring approach to end of life issues, giving patients the support and comfort that they need to remain at home, surrounded by loved ones, in their final days. To illuminate these stories for donors and the public at large, R&R creates video presentations that share the loving, dignified care that Saint Mary’s staff provides, emphasizing comfort and a celebration of each person’s life.
These experiences are shared with existing and potential donors at various events and serve to reinforce the real and lasting impact that Saint Mary’s Hospice has on so many in the region.
