An Evening for Hospice

Raises $17,400 for Hospice Services

More than 150 guests enjoyed the 19th annual An Evening for Hospice on Sunday, November 13 at the KC Hall. A delicious dinner was prepared by Consolidated Management Catering and served by Community Hospital volunteers. Twenty-seven silent auction packages; ten of which were donated by Community Hospital departments brought a total of $3,800 for hospice services. Two auction items were sold during a live auction. Sponsors, ticket sales and other contributions resulted in a net profit of $17,400.

The event included a program that has been described as the best ever. Guests were entertained by a presentation from Dr. Helen S. Chapple entitled, Opportunities in Dying, followed by a heartfelt story of gratitude for the hospice team by Myrna Mulligan who recently lost the love of her life, Charlie. Lisa Bortner sang her rendition of Ave Maria during the candle lighting ceremony and Stand by Me as a second vocal solo. 

Each year net proceeds from the event are directed to support the special hospice team of physicians, nurses, clergy, social workers and volunteers who continue to provide physical, spiritual and emotional care for our patients and their families. Where possible funds are applied to educational opportunities and training materials to ensure they are well prepared to carry out their mission.

An Evening for Hospice is truly a community partnership in healthcare. Thank you to everyone who made the event successful.
