Hospice staff will be on hand from 1:30 – 5:30 p.m. to help you select among the many bedazzling and fun earrings, bracelets and necklaces. The multi-colored beads and sparkling stones, are interspersed with glittering silver and pearl accents.

“This will be the perfect occasion to find fun, unique and eye-catching gifts for all the women on your Mother’s Day list – or as a gift to yourself,” said Diane Nelson, HoCF development manager. “The goal is to provide this community with the very best hospice care, and it takes money – whether we furnish a wheelchair, medicines, a nebulizer or pay down the mortgage on the Hospice House. In 30 years of providing end-of-life care for terminally-ill residents of the Foothills area, we’ve gone from serving nine patients in 1981 to 430 patients in 2010. That’s why we are constantly looking for ways to raise money.”
