Mary Carol Garrity, interior designer and owner of Nell Hill’s, inspired more than 170 guests at the Country Club of Lincoln with her conversation and design inspiration this spring at the Dish and Bloom luncheon.
The space was filled with admiration and amusement as Garrity shared tales of her interior design background, her recent move to a lakeside cottage and the journey of her interior design store located in Kansas City, Missouri. Garrity was joined on stage by her long-time friend and Madonna employee, Marilyn Dongilli, who added to the insightful and fun conversation. Guests left with innovative ideas on ways to update their own homes.
Many guests also purchased the beautiful centerpieces from Nell Hill’s that adorned each table-top during the luncheon.
Funds raised at the event will help support programs, services and research provided by Madonna and not covered by insurance reimbursement. These include programs like Kit’s Adacemy Therapeutic Learning Center, Adapted Sports, St. Benedict’s Patient Emergency Fund, the Madonna Institute for Rehabilitation Science and Engineering, Spiritual Care, Community Medical Transportation, specialized technologies, and other programs and equipment.
