Description:

Once upon a time ... a quarter of a century ago, Karen Fox humbly stepped through the doors of Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital to befriend patients in their hour of need. So began the Raggedy Ann & Andy volunteer program. Today, 1 million visits later, the adventure continues. On March 5, Adventures in Caring marks its 25 years of caring with a special luncheon at the Four Seasons Biltmore. Honoring those who made it possible and those for whom the work is done is the theme of this special day.

Best known for its Raggedy Ann & Andy visiting program for hospitals and nursing homes, the mission of the Adventures in Caring Foundation is to lift the spirit of those who are sick and lonely, and to cultivate compassion in health care. This year the nonprofit celebrates 25 years of teaching and delivering compassion. Adventures in Caring, 1528 Chapala St., Suite 202, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.
