Dine Out for Hospice event in local restaurants Nov. 4-9

Published 4:11pm Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Twenty-nine area restaurants are stepping up to the plate to partner with Hospice of the Carolina Foothills (HoCF) during the first week of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, Nov. 4-9.

The purpose is two-fold: to raise awareness of hospice services in a two-state, three county service areas (Polk, N.C., and Spartanburg and Greenville, S.C.); and to raise funds to support patient and family care.

Supporting restaurants have picked a day between Sunday, Nov. 4, and Friday, Nov. 9, and pledged a percentage of their sales to Hospice of the Carolina Foothills.

One restaurant owner voiced the attitude of all when she said, “This is a great opportunity to show good will to an organization who has faithfully served our area for more than 30 years.”

So pick a day…pick a restaurant…pick up your fork!
