Fashion for a Cause struts its stuff

Congratulations to Hospice of the Chesapeake for a successful fundraiser at the stunning Fluegel Navy Alumni Center last weekend. The event raised $242,000 for Chesapeake Kids, a program providing compassionate, comprehensive, and holistic care to children living with life-limiting conditions and their families. Didn’t make the (sold out) event? It’s never too late to help.

2024 Hurricane Season 🌀

DYK, hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30? And NOAA’s predicting above-normal activity this season. The official outlook anticipates up to 25 total named storms (winds of 39 MPH or ⬆) of which 8-13 may become hurricanes (winds of 74 MPH or ⬆️). Get prepared now with these tips from the City of Annapolis Office of Emergency Management:

  • Complete a Family Communication Plan: Anticipate how to assemble everyone (including pets!) and decide where to shelter.

  • Make a Preparedness Kit: Your emergency kit should include water, non-perishable food, medications, first aid, important documents, personal hygiene items, and pet food with supplies for 3 days.

  • Stay Informed using these tools:

    • Alert Annapolis: The city sends automated phone messages, text messages, or emails in the event of an emergency. Sign up or text “ANNAPOLIS” to 38276.

    • Prepare Me Annapolis Mobile App: Provides real-time alerts for Annapolitans to be prepared for emergencies. Find it at the Apple Store or on Google Play.
