Holiday-themed Gift Boutique to Benefit Adult Day Center

Holly Day Market takes place at the VNA on November 5th and 6th

The Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills (VNA) is pleased to announce the premier of The Holly Day Market, a gift boutique that will raise funds and awareness for the Adult Day Center (ADC) at Somerset Hills, an adult day services program run by the nonprofit healthcare organization. The holiday-themed shopping event will be held on Saturday, November 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Sunday, November 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the VNA of Somerset Hills, located at 200 Mt. Airy Road in Basking Ridge, NJ.

“We are thrilled by the palpable excitement for the Holly Day Market already shown by the community,” stated Mona Gibson, Market Chairperson and VNA Trustee. “Our boutique features exclusive vendors from across the country who will be showcasing unique items such as custom shoes for women, fine jewelry, monogrammed gifts, clothing for men, women and children, table linens, sweets, treats, and much more. We welcome everyone to this special venue to help the VNA ensure that the Adult Day Center can continue provide services that help ease the stress and worries that caregivers may experience when caring for their loved one.”

“We are proud to debut this exciting new event at the VNA headquarters, which is also the home of our Adult Day Center,” said Daniel Powell, President and CEO of the VNA of Somerset Hills. “By hosting the market onsite, shoppers will have an opportunity to see, first-hand, the excellent facilities that their purchases will support. Proceeds will benefit our ADC programs and clientele, including those who face the challenges of moderate dementia, stroke-induced functional impairments, and other chronic illnesses.”

A partial list of shops scheduled to appear at the Holly Day Market include: A & J Designs; August Designs; Bay Head Bags; Basking Ridge Garden Club; Calvert Life; Cherry Daydream; Coming Up Roses; Creative Designs and Gifts; Dagny Scout; Friends of the VNA of Somerset Hills/Cookie Walk; KK’s; Margaux NY; Meg Carter Designs; Nantucket Sweaters; Peaceable Hill Paperie; The Personalized Party; The Posh Shop; Ride and Reflect; Secret Garden Soap; Silver Oaks Organics; Stanton Sweets; Tassot Apiaries; Ward Vintage; Windswept; and Zwikker and Zacher.

The Adult Day Club at Somerset Hills provides a warm and welcoming setting that enhances the quality of life for people who will benefit from companionship during the day, including those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Members enjoy a fulfilling day outside the home including a variety of engaging activities, lunch and snacks, daily exercise sessions, and personal care services. Experienced and nurturing staff are focused on supporting the individual health, emotional and recreational needs of each member. Caregivers also receive a much-needed break from their stressful daily routine, allowing time for work and other non-caregiving responsibilities while feeling confident while their loved one is safe and not lonely. The care provided at the Adult Day Club may help delay need for placing a loved one in an assisted living or nursing facility.
