BELOIT, Wisconsin — Beloit Regional Hospice has announced that Type A Image’s Generations Benefit raised $900 to benefit BRH in providing services to all who need care.

The Third Annual Generations Benefit took place Sunday, Dec. 7. The Generations Benefit is a fund-raiser run by Type A Images Photography to raise money for Beloit Regional Hospice. The benefit provides professional, classic studio portraits to grandparents and their grandchildren for a $50 donation. All participants received an 8-inch-by-10-inch photo and digital files, and all proceeds go to Hospice.

Amanda Reseburg of Type A Images gave her time and talents to Hospice patients by visiting them where they live and taking professional portraits at no cost.

I started the program in 2011 after all the support BRH gave to my hospice photography program,” Reseburg said. “I wanted to give something back and also wanted to do something for the grandparents in the stateline area. I was very close to my grandmother and a professional portrait with her from my wedding is one of my prized possessions. I love getting the families together and capturing a portrait that is not always able to be made during the course of the year. I support hospice for the simple reason that they support the community. The end of life process is one that deserves and requires a lot of professional and compassionate support, and the work that hospice does is vitally important.” 

For more than 32 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.
