On Thursday, May 28, the hardworking members of the Gala on Derby Eve Committee presented Hospice Care Plus with the proceeds from this year’s event.
In total, the event raised $29,797.38. The total includes $4,050 raised by the Berea Younger Woman’s Club at the live and silent auctions it hosted at this year’s Gala.
“It was a phenomenal night,” says Julie Hatfield, a committee member and Hospice Care Plus’s special events coordinator. “We can’t thank the committee, all the sponsors and donors, volunteers, and guests enough. It gets better and better each year.”
Proceeds from the Gala support all programs at Hospice, including home hospice care, inpatient care at the Compassionate Care Center, palliative care, and bereavement care. In addition, the funds help off-set the cost of providing care, regardless of ability to pay, for the uninsured and the under-insured.
