Honoring our dads for Father's Day
This past weekend, Elizabeth Seeger Jolly celebrated the memory of her father at the 10th anniversary party of her thriving leather business, Satchel. Part of the evening's proceeds benefited Hospice Savannah and the heart hospital at St. Joseph's. Mr. Seeger had been a TWA pilot and the evening had a vintage airline theme - replete with his favorite cocktails! Elizabeth and Mom (Center) are pictured with Vernice Rackett, St. Joseph's/Candler Foundations, and Hospice Savannah Foundation's Ophelia Rodriguez (R). Reach Ophelia at 912.229.1027 for suggestions on how to make a gift to honor or remember your Dad this Father's Day.
Happy Birthday Hospice Savannah!
