St. Joseph’s Health Foundation held its Fashion with Compassion event, benefitting the hospital.
Doctor’s and health care members and some of their patients at the hospital walked a fashion runway at the Rockleigh Country Club, while others cheered them on.
All proceeds from the event benefit the $55 million renovation of the Women’s & Children’s Pavilion at St. Joseph’s. The renovations include, transforming 8 different clinical units, improving the Labor and Delivery/Postpartum experience and enhancing the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Among the guests at the benefit were Dolores Catania and Rachel Fuda from “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
“It just gets better every year,” Catania told ONNJ’s Lisa Marie Falbo. “I was really happy that Rachel came. We have a platform that we love to use. She got to see the kids and she really got a feel of what goes on here.”
“This is such an amazing event. I’m so excited to be here and be part of such an amazing cause,” said Fuda.
The reality stars also dished on the explosive season finale of their Bravo show.
“The finale is wild,” Fuda dished. “I feel like we walked into that not really knowing what was gonna happen. And it was like, the bomb was lit and everyone just stood back and watched it explode.”
Fuda said she was a fan of the show, even before she became a cast member.
“I watched all the seasons during COVID,” she admitted. “I wasn’t surprised by the drama, I was surprised by the genuine feeling behind what people were saying. And how angry people were, and how passionate they were, and how real and raw it is.”
Catania encouraged viewers to “have a party” and teased, “It’s gonna be fun.”
You can catch season 13 of “RHONJ” Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
