This event will include lunch and dessert with coffee and tea. Snacks will also be provided. Everyone in the community is invited to enter a team of four per table. The Texas A&M Singing Cadets, “Aggienizers,” will perform during the luncheon, and there will also be door prizes.  Cost for the event is $60 per person, which includes lunch.

Felicita Longnecker, Hospice Auxiliary’s publicity chairman, says, “’Play A Hand for Hospice’ was so popular last year that it has become our second largest fundraiser. We hope to have an even larger crowd this year. We had so many positive responses from all those who attended last year. And, a huge thank you goes out to Miramont Country Club for helping the Auxiliary sponsor this event.”
