Hospice Savannah is asking friends and supporters to celebrate its 35th year of serving the community by hosting a “Summer Nights” fundraising party during its birthday month of June.

Established in June 1979, not-for-profit Hospice Savannah freely offers palliative and hospice care to residents in five counties of the Coastal Empire. Proceeds from “Summer Nights” parties will support the Daily Impact Fund – making a difference each and every day by providing free bereavement counseling to any child, teen or adult; an overnight children’s grief camp; complementary therapies of music, story keeping and massage; a We Honor Veterans initiative; Palliative Care clinics in both local hospital systems; and Pet Peace of Mind® enabling patients and their beloved pets to stay together.

The Hospice Savannah Foundation will make it as easy and fun as possible to host a party of any size or format during the birthday month of June. Invitations and donation cards will be provided for guests, and each host receives a birthday cake courtesy of Joe’s Homemade Café.

There is a wine and cheese planning meeting for hosts on Thursday, May 15 at 5:30 p.m. at Hospice House. Full details can be found at http://www.HospiceSavannah.org/SummerNights or call Ophelia Rodriguez at 912-629-1027. And obviously, donations in lieu of parties will be gladly accepted!
