    Warwick — The Warwick Women’s Committee of the St. Anthony Community Hospital Foundation will present “A Woman’s Journey: The Fun Side of Aging” at Catlin Gardens at 6 p.m. in Slate Hill. The program is designed to support St. Anthony Community Hospital and Warwick Healthcare Campus and proceeds raised from the event will benefit the Mount Alverno Center. “The event will bring together women from Warwick and the surrounding communities to examine issues related to aging and the importance of being an advocate for your own health,” said event co-chairperson, Terry Quint. “We are raising money for a wonderful cause, to uplift the décor at Mount Alverno and to launch our ‘Make This House a Home’ initiative that will greatly enhance the lives of residents.” Rachel Colvin, D.O., an internist and nephrologist affiliated with St. Anthony Community Hospital, will discuss topics that affect the quality and measure of women’s lives and will address how women can become advocates for their own good health. Comedienne Flo Hannes will provide the evening’s entertainment with her one-woman show, “When Did I Become My Mother,” which has received rave reviews. Attendees can visit vendor tables to buy health and lifestyle goods and services. There will also be a variety of silent auction items to bid on as well. Tickets for the evening are $50 and will include cocktail hour, buffet dinner and dessert. In addition, Jen’s Cookies will donate cookies for all attendees. For additional information, call 368-5151.
