Hospice Foundation

The 33rd Annual Helping Hands dinner was held on Wednesday, May 3, and honored the area's First Responders, or as we like to call them, Heroes at Hand. The jobs of First Responders are dangerous, and often thankless. They risk their lives every day so that we can go about our daily activities without worrying about our safety. These men and women perform their jobs whether we thank them or not. It is their duty. It is their chosen profession. They deserve our gratitude and our respect.

Thank you to all who joined us at the Gillespie Events Center at Hilton Garden Inn. The evening was a wonderful tribute to First Responders, and we were honored to have so many in attendance!
