1000 Thanks to 1000 Donors

By Sunset Hospice Cottage Board of Directors

The annual fundraiser on April 2 is an evening none of us will soon forget.  It felt so good to be together as a community; laughing, joking, and sharing stories face-to-face.

Most impressive is the amount of generosity the community showed for the Cottage. Monetarily, you gave more than any prior year, but more importantly the number of people that participated in this year’s event was beyond our expectations.

Listed below are the 253 entries of people who publicly supported the event. Reviewing the list, you will notice many are couples, families, and organizations that represent dozens of people each.  Combined, we can safely say that over 1000 people contributed to the success of the evening. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Latest news

Both my mother and father passed away at Sunset Hospice Cottage and the facility was a blessing to them and our family. It allowed us to be together through the good times and the hard ones. And enabled us to spend as much time with mom as she wanted without burdening her. Sunset Hospice Cottage provided the professional care, comfortable surroundings and spiritual support that we knew she wanted.
