Hospice Happening is the annual fundraiser that allows the community to have fun while supporting the services Hospice Brazos Valley provides. This year’s theme, “Red, White & Bluesy” will pay tribute to military personnel, veterans, the country and the Brazos Valley. The Texas Blues Brothers, St. Joseph High School Concert Choir and the Texas Twisters will provide entertainment during the evening of February 18. After an introduction of Honorary Chairpersons John and Kay Duncum, a Live Auction will be held. At its conclusion, the gaming tables will open up in the Brazos Expo Center’s ballroom.
Attendees will enjoy a dinner, games and a live auction, the funds raised will go towards patient care. Hospice Brazos Valley staff serve patients and their families in the comfort of their home or in the HBV’s new inpatient facility opening this month in the north wing of the St. Joseph Rehabilitation Center. The seven-bed inpatient facility provides a comfortable, home-like environment that will serve patients with needs that cannot be met at home.
Besides attending this year’s Hospice Happening fundraiser, there are other ways to get involved with Hospice Brazos Valley during the year. Hospice Auxiliary is a non-profit organization benefiting Hospice Brazos Valley with the goal of providing financial support as well as promoting community awareness of the hospice mission. Hospice Auxiliary provides educational programs, meetings and social gatherings for its members.
Hospice Auxiliary programs and meetings are scheduled on the fourth Wednesday of each month between September and October and January through May. Meetings are held at the Pebble Creek Country Club, and members can reserve a catered lunch. Programs include a guest speaker followed by a short business meeting.
The next Hospice Auxillary meeting is scheduled for February 22 and will host Warren L. Finch, director of George Bush Presidential Museum. While an RSVP is required, the community is invited to attend all meetings and new members are always welcomed.
