Compass Regional Hospice Gala April 7
GRASONVILLE — On Friday, April 7, Compass Regional Hospice will host its annual gala at Annie’s Paramount Steak and Seafood House in Grasonville. The Compass Regional Hospice Gala is the premier fundraiser that supports hospice care and grief support available in Queen Anne’s, Kent and Caroline counties.
The 2017 Gala will begin at 6:30 p.m., and features cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by a seated dinner of petite filets and lobster tail. After dinner, the dance band Retrospect will entertain guests with a playlist that includes today’s hits and memorable tunes back to the Big Band era.
Gala guests will support Compass Regional Hospice by bidding on premier silent and live auction items that were generously donated. Items will include vacation packages and jewelry.
This year’s jewelry raffle includes a private shopping experience at Paula’s Fine Jewelry in Chester and a $3,000 gift certificate to be spent on an item valued at $3,000 or more. Raffle tickets are $100 and only 100 tickets will be sold. The winning ticket will be drawn at the gala and the winner does not need to be present.
Gala tickets are $200 per person and must be purchased in advance of the event. To purchase gala or jewelry raffle tickets, or to sponsor the gala, contact Kenda Leager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 443-262-4106. For more information, visit compassregionalhospice/ events.
