Family members throughout Delaware find help coping with a serious illness or the loss of a loved one through Delaware Hospice’s wide spectrum of programs, which are free to the public.
These community service efforts are made possible through the generosity of individuals and businesses such as those who supported the recent Beef and Brew fundraiser at Georgetown CHEER Center March 27.
Organizer Peggy Dolby, associate director of development, said, “Thanks to a great turnout of more than 200 and the wonderful gifts donated by local sponsors and businesses, we raised more than $17,000 this year to benefit our programs and services in the community!”
Delaware Hospice acknowledges the following sponsors: Entertainment Sponsor Dewey Beach Lions Club; Table Sponsors Delaware State Police Federal Credit Union, Jack Lingo Realtor, Regina Hansen, Hazzard Auto Parts, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, Tunnell Companies LP; Food and Refreshment Sponsors American Legion Auxiliary Unit 28, Bayhealth, Mary Beth Dockety, Nickle Electrical, John Ward; and Media Sponsors Chesapeake Utilities Corp., Del-One, Thomas Hoyer, and Martin Miller.
Delaware Hospice also extends thanks to Banks Wines & Spirits, the Starboard Restaurant & Bar, Lighthouse Catering, Pepsi Bottling Company, Georgetown CHEER Center, and the Funsters.
