On April 9, 2016 we held our first ever FRIENDraiser at Dashe Cellars. Thanks to our guests and generous sponsors we raised over $10,000 while welcoming many new friends to the Foundation. It was a fun evening and despite the rain (and the game) we more than met our goal of 100 guests! We also want to express our deep gratitude to all the generous companies and businesses that contributed to make the evening a success.
We are especially grateful to Anne and Mike Dashe for their generosity in hosting the evening and to Auntie Linda for preparing the scrumptious hors d’oeuvres.
A very special shout out to Laurynn Gould for her lovely music and of course, we could never have held such a successful event without our army of dedicated volunteers.
Thank you again for your support of the FRIENDraiser and helping us start our journey. Too often terminal illnesses create a huge financial burden on patients and their families during a very difficult time when emotional and financial needs are often the greatest. Your gift will provide comfort to those in the most need when needs extend beyond the borders of traditional hospice benefits to those in the most need.
