7th Annual Treasures of Cleveland Supports Music Therapy Program

October 2016 – Cleveland, Ohio – Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio is pleased to announce the organization’s 7th annual Treasures of Cleveland event, which will be held on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hilton Downtown Cleveland. Tickets can be purchased at https://support.vnaohio.org/treasures-of-cleveland. Guests are invited to enjoy small plate dining, cocktail mingling, and tremendous items and packages during a silent and live auction.

Last year, sponsors, supporters and guests raised the funds necessary to launch a music therapy program, in partnership with The Music Settlement, at VNA of Ohio to support qualified patients and their families. Since its inception in 2015, the program has enhanced the care, quality of life and overall well-being of the individuals and families served. The goal of the 7th annual event is to expand the program and grow the number of patients that receive this specialized service.

During the event, guests will experience the power of music therapy firsthand from music therapist Katelyn Rotuno. A graduate of Baldwin Wallace University Conservatory of Music and Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Rotuno utilizes her strengths as a vocalist in her clinical work. She will speak about how music therapy and the use of the harmonica have helped one of her patients who is suffering from COPD.

Funds raised during the event will directly support the newly launched music therapy program. The sustainability of the program will further impact the lives of patients and families in the community.

Tickets are $150 each and can be purchased by phone at 216-931-1490 or online at https://support.vnaohio.org/treasures-of-cleveland.

VNA of Ohio extends its appreciation to BakerHostetler, Busch Funeral & Crematory Services, Medical Mutual of Ohio, and Sherwin Williams for their ongoing support.

The Hilton Downtown Cleveland is located at 100 Lakeside Avenue East, Cleveland, Ohio 44114.
