Hospice of Aroostook will hold its second annual Tour of Mexico & Silent Auction on Friday, June 28, 2013, at The Crow’s Nest in Presque Isle. Dr. David Jones, central Aroostook’s hospice medical director, will be the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Music will be provided by KC & Company DJ Services.
A delicious, authentic Mexican meal will be provided. Staff, hospice volunteers and other community members have been diligently gathering a variety of items and packages, including enticing themed gift baskets, gift certificates and specialty gifts. There will be something for everyone.
“We are really excited about doing another Tour evening,” explains Jessica St. Peter, VNA Clinical Coordinator and event coordinator. “Last year our Tour of Italy saw over 200 in attendance. It was such a fun evening and the proceeds of over $7,000 helped support patients receiving our hospice services. Many community members have donated goods and services to make this year’s event another success. We appreciate all the support we have received.”
Hospice of Aroostook has been providing services for 30 years. Last year, our staff and volunteers provided compassionate end-of-life care to nearly 200 patients and their families.
