FAIRHOPE Celebrates Life & Community Members on 40th Anniversary

FAIRHOPE Hospice & Palliative Care, Inc. hosted its annual FAIRHOPE Celebrates Life event from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 21 at The Mill Event Center in Lancaster, Ohio.

This event celebrated award winners, featured a signature fundraising event, a hybrid silent auction, an in-person live auction and a silent auction. Donations from the event will support the FAIRHOPE Memorial Fund. This fund allows FAIRHOPE to provide end-of-life care to chronically and terminally ill patients who otherwise could not afford care and assists with other special patient needs and non-reimbursable program services.

“As we mark four decades of meeting the needs of our patients and their families, I am grateful for the community support and I look forward to continuing our journey,” said Kristin Glasure, President and CEO of FAIRHOPE. “Last year, FAIRHOPE served 977 hospice patients and 824 palliative patients in 10 counties. Our team also had 895 grief care visits for adults and children. This is possible because of the generous contributions that enable us to serve each other in coming together for a broader purpose.”
