The Broadlawns Medical Center Foundation has made the decision to cancel this year’s Rosé Soirée. As a healthcare organization, we continue to experience the reality of COVID exposure at our hospital. It is important for our Foundation to make a decision that aligns with the continued health and wellness of the community-at-large.
This year’s Rosé Soirée was planned to benefit the Broadlawns FOCUS Children’s Mental Health Program, which provides intensive outpatient therapy and outreach programming for Des Moines Public School students who have no other path forward. Students in the FOCUS program have been diagnosed with a mental health disorder, are considered low-income, and have experienced and/or currently experience trauma in their homes. The FOCUS program provides youth with the skills and care they need to overcome barriers and complete their education.
Although Rosé Soirée has been cancelled, now more than ever, funds are needed to support Broadlawns Medical Center and the healthcare needs – particularly the mental healthcare needs - of our community and its most vulnerable individuals. We would sincerely appreciate your consideration of support with a monetary gift. You can make a meaningful difference in the lives of our community’s youth in need of mental healthcare and emotional support.
$10,000 provides one year of socialization skill building and enrichment activities.
$5,000 provides lunches for students during school breaks.
$2,500 provides one year supply of gas to transport FOCUS students for enrichment activities.
$1,000 provides nutritious student breakfasts during school breaks.
$500 provides two months of group therapy supplies.
$250 provides two months of incentives that recognize positive student behavior.
$100 provides one month of staff support of the on-site clothing closet and food pantry.
