The Friends of Hospice presented a check for $35,000 to the Karen Ann Quinlan Memorial Foundation on December 14th. The Friends of Hospice is a volunteer group that hold fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice – a not-for-profit organization. The money is used help patients and families who are experiencing financial hardships while coping with a life-limiting illness.
The signature Friends fundraisers include: Half for Hospice, a progressive 50/50 raffle, the Wine and Cheese Festival and High Tea for Hospice which will be held on Thursday, February 27, 2019.
The Friends are always looking for new members and membership is open to anyone in the community.
