Tailgating for Team LifeCare, an online fundraising event for Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare will be held Oct. 24-31. This event replaces the Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare Spring Gala that was postponed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Tailgating for Team LifeCare online event will feature opportunities to learn through video presentations about the mission of Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare and how the not-for-profit hospice provides support to patients and their families. The event also will feature an opportunity to bid on more than 40 items through an online auction.
Proceeds raised from the online event will help Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare continue to provide superior care and superior services to anyone in the community facing end-of-life illnesses, regardless of their ability to pay. Events such as Tailgating for Team LifeCare enable Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare to be able to provide support services, including complementary and innovative therapies that are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance, and grief support services for the entire community.
“Each and every day, we are honored and privileged to fulfill our mission to provide superior care and superior services to each patient and family,” said Kurt Holmes, executive director of Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare. “We are truly grateful for the ongoing generous support from community members, local businesses and corporations.”
The lead sponsors of the Tailgating for Team online event are Greg and Kathy Long. Presenting sponsors are Friendtique; Kokosing; United Titanium, Inc.; Wooster Color Point; and Wooster Glass Co. Gold sponsors are Bogner Construction Company and Pomerene Hospital.
