Cottage Fundraiser April 2; It Takes a Community

By Sunset Hospice Cottage Board of Directors

For all we have come through as a community in the last 2 years, our community has come through for the Cottage. We can’t wait to thank you in person at our annual event!

Life is back to normal, and we are so incredibly excited for the upcoming Annual Fundraiser on April 2 at 5pm at the Worthington Event Center. We are long overdue for greeting one another to share a drink, a meal and a great conversation. Simply put, it will be 3 full years between events and we cannot wait to see everyone.

We wish we could say that you are going to be served the best food ever cooked (we won’t), we wish we could say that you will hear the best speaker of your lifetime (we can’t), but we CAN tell you that will absolutely be surrounded by the best community imaginable. Weeks before our fundraiser, we have already sold out of every ticket, every table and more importantly the list of sponsors and benefactors is larger than ever before. It is truly a community event; organized by our community, funded by our community, and all for the long-term benefit of our community.

Before we come together face to face on this fateful Saturday, we wanted to heartfully thank the hundreds of people who are making this event possible!

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.
