BELOIT, Wis. — Beloit Regional Hospice has announced that “Doves and Diamonds: Celebrate Hospice” has been scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m. at the Eclipse Center on Riverside Drive in Beloit, Wis. The smooth sounds of jazz and classical music start the evening, before Little Vito and the Torpedoes take the stage again with dance, music and fun as guests enjoy a hors d’oeuvre buffet and a silent auction.
This annual fund-raising event is in its 10th year and helps bridge the gap between what it costs to care for patients and what is reimbursed by public and private insurance.
The highly anticipated evening allows supporters of the agency to come together in a festive environment to celebrate the gifts of life. Reservations are $50. To make a reservation or for more information, call Beloit Regional Hospice at (608) 363-7421. Checks can be mailed to 655 Third St., Suite 200, Beloit, WI 53511.
For more than 30 years, Beloit Regional Hospice staff and volunteers have been leaders in quality and compassion who seek to serve all who want and need their care. Through teamwork, they advocate for appropriate care while respecting the right of patients to choose their journey, and above all, hope is always embraced at the end of life.
The non-profit organization’s mission is, “To help make each moment of remaining life as full and comfortable as possible,” for terminally ill individuals and families in the counties of Boone, Green, Rock, Walworth and Winnebago. Visit their website at www.beloitregionalhospice.com.
