United Hospice Service Replaces Fall Luncheon With Online Memorial & Auction
In an effort to do our part in protecting the public health from COVID-19, United Hospice Service of Marlette Regional Hospital is replacing the annual Hospice Luncheon with a virtual Online Memorial & Auction on October 20, 2020 from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
The annual luncheon brought many friends and new acquaintances together and has served as a large fundraiser for the hospice program and the patients they have the privilege to serve. Though things may look a bit different this year with a virtual event in place of an in-person gathering, we hope the community will still support the hospice program by joining in the fun of bidding on many unique prizes.
The public and area businesses are invited to participate by sponsoring the event in memory of someone special and/or by participating in the online auction as a bidder. Various sponsorship opportunities are available ranging from $50 - $250. Hospice is also accepting in-kind donations of home-made crafts, special interest items, baskets, and prizes for the auction that can be dropped off or picked up upon request. The sponsorship form can be downloaded from www.marletteregionalhospital.org by visiting the Event Calendar page.
To participate as a bidder, visit the United Hospice Service Facebook page, “Like” the page, and “Join” the Online Memorial & Auction event page. Teasers and door prizes will be awarded leading up to the auction on October 20.
For more information, please visit the United Hospice Facebook page or call 800-635-7490. Invitations will be mailed to past supporters of the annual Hospice Luncheon in the coming weeks.
