— The Valley Mall and Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar are teaming up this month on a fundraiser for the Memorial Foundation, the charitable arm of Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital.

Feb. 23, Twigs is holding a “Ladies Who Brunch” event, with all the proceeds going to the foundation. The brunch will include a fashion show, raffle prizes, entertainment and a “swag bag.”

Money from the event will go toward several areas of health care, including initiatives for children, cancer care, end-of-life care and the overall health of the Yakima community.

“We are elated to work with the remarkable team at the Valley Mall and the exciting new Twigs restaurant to bring together women who love a good cause and want to make a difference,” said Memorial Foundation president Anne Caffery.

Lynda Boggess, administrative director of critical care services at Memorial, will be a guest speaker at the event.

“This event is a great opportunity for us as we combine efforts to increase awareness, provide a platform to educate the women in our community and share preventative measures in maintaining a healthy lifestyle,” said Allie Stewart, general manager of Valley Mall.

The event costs $60 per ticket and will start at 9:30 a.m. Feb. 23 at Twigs in the Valley Mall, 2529 Main St., Union Gap.
