Supporting a Home with Heart

On Saturday, March 3, Pulse Design Group joined other local businesses and community members as both a sponsor and guest at the Friendship Inn’s 9th Annual “Taste of Hospitality” wine dinner and silent auction. Pulse attendees included Principals Michael Andracsek and Richard Embers, team members Basil Sherman II and Charles Haase, and their spouses. The event was a tremendous success raising more than $102,000 for Friendship Inn.

Since opening in 2001, Friendship Inn has provided lodging for more than 1,000 guests. Its mission is to provide a home away from home for patients and their families who are being treated at the University of Kansas Hospital. As a hospitality house, priority is given to those who live more than 30 miles away. Guests pay a nominal fee, but if someone is unable to pay, Friendship Inn will not turn him or her away.
