A Masterpiece of Hope II

Butler Hospital Foundation raised nearly $70,000 through sponsorships, ticket sales, and silent auction at A Masterpiece of Hope II, hosted at the historic Providence Art Club on May 8, 2019. The gathering generated awareness for Butler Hospital’s services and research, and raised funds to support highly-skilled and individualized mental health care for adults ages 65 and older in the Senior Specialty Program.  


Approximately 150 community members and staff were in attendance to honor Kelly Doern as Corporation Member of the Year and Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen with the Lila M. Sapinsley Community Service Award. In addition, to help celebrate Butler’s 175th Anniversary, a unique display of edible artistry was created at the event by Anthony Tarro, chef and co-owner of Siena restaurants, and modern artist Paul Cote. Through the layering of flavors with various sauces, Paul created a visual explosion of color palettes to mirror a work of modern art paired with pastries prepared by Siena restaurant.


Proceeds from the signature event will help support the Senior Specialty Program at Butler Hospital, which provides critically important treatment for adults age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease, memory disorders, depression, anxiety, and other conditions that may cause behavioral difficulties. 


Cox Business, The Doern Family, Hinckley Allen and New England Laborers' Health and Safety Fund were leadership sponsors for A Masterpiece of Hope II. Generous support was also given by Dimeo Construction Company, E. W. Burman and Gilbane Building Company as well as many others.
