Savour the Journey 2014
Savour the Journey 2014 was a grand event as we celebrated the 30th anniversary of Arbor Hospice with Le Printemps a Paris, or Springtime in Paris. On Saturday, May 17, 2014, the Biomedical Science Research Building was transformed into a Parisian streetscape where guests enjoyed delectable selections provided by the area's top chefs, strolling musicians, mimes, vendors selling lovely commemorative items, a wine pull with an amazing array of French selections - and much more. Later in the evening, we had a fantastic live auction where guests bid on a variety of Amazing Experiences, a brief program, then a live band and dancing.
The event raised funds for the care of low-income patients, grief support programs for anyone in our community who has lost a loved one, pediatric hospice care and complementary therapies, including music, massage and pet therapy. But what it really means is that we're helping provide our family, friends and neighbors with comfort, dignity and peace on their end-of-life journey and hope for those who are left behind.
