(SOUTH HAVEN) – On Saturday, August 4, more than 400 community members and 45 volunteers attended “Embracing Hospice at Home,” a wine and beer tasting benefit for Caring Circle, a Lakeland Health Affiliate, which took place on the property of Dan and Mary Nulty, along the South Beach bluff in South Haven. Through sponsorships, ticket sales, and event activities, a total of $73,100 was raised in support of hospice care, bereavement care, and Life is Precious services for the community of South Haven and surrounding areas. A portion of funds raised will also go to support 44 days of hospice care for those in need.
“We are so grateful to the many community members and volunteers who have made this event successful every year,” said Melinda Gruber, PhD, CEO of Caring Circle and Vice President of Continued Care Services, Lakeland Health. “Their participation ensures Caring Circle can continue to meet the end-of-life care needs for those in our community, regardless of their ability to pay.”
