Celebrations for Hospice of the Carolina FoothillsPublished 10:10am Wednesday, July 17, 2013
July marks a momentous month for Hospice of the Carolina Foothills. It is the month we served our first patient 32 years ago in Polk County.
To that end we are celebrating in two ways.
During the week of July 14 – 20, Dine Out for Hospice at one of the many restaurants that is donating a percentage of their sales to us on their chosen “Dining Out” day(s). From Saluda to Spartanburg/Greenville and every town in between, there are many wonderful eats to choose from.
Mike Duncan at Carolinas’ Harvest House has this to say: “Hospice is a great organization serving families in the most critical and special time of life. The wonderful and caring people associated with Hospice are truly God sent. Thank you for all you do for families in their hours of need. One of our employees Troy Brooks’ father is in Hospice care now. This is our first year and we hope to raise a lot of money for Hospice of the Carolina Foothills.” Harvest House is participating on Saturday, July 20. For a complete listing check out the “Let’s Eat” page at DiningOutForHospice.org.
While you are out and about, run up/down/over to the Tryon Fine Arts Center (in downtown Tryon) and visit the Guntram Gersch Memorial Exhibition and Silent Auction, which opens Saturday, July 13 and runs through July 20. An informal presentation on the art and life of Mr. Gersch will be held on Wednesday, July 17 at 1:30 p.m. at TFAC. The silent auction will end on Saturday, July 20. For more information about the artist and his prolific work, visit www.GuntramGersch.info
“Since we served our first patient in Green Creek in July 1981, Hospice of the Carolina Foothills has been dedicated to providing excellent healthcare to individuals with life-limiting illnesses,” says CEO Jean Eckert. “Our care is compassionate and people-focused, and we are privileged to now provide this service in Polk, Spartanburg and Greenville counties.”
Every dollar raised during these benefits is used for patient and family care, according to Director of Outreach Marsha Van Hecke. For more information, contact Marsha at 828-894-7000, 864-457-9122, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
