Founded in 1984 by ten women inspired by our mission, Friends of Hospice is a dynamic and dedicated group of volunteers who raise funds and awareness for our community programs. Now numbering 100+ members—including three men!—Friends has raised more than $2.3 million over the years, primarily through its Oktoberfest and Fairways for Kids fundraisers.
Friends of Hospice meets once monthly (except in November), and new members are always welcome! As their name implies, Friends of Hospice is an amiable group, united by a desire to support the work of HSCC as well as to enjoy the company of enthusiastic, generous-spirited people.
