Healing Hearts benefit on tap
A fundraiser to benefit the award-winning Healing Hearts Center for Grieving Children and Families, a program of Regional Hospice and Home Care in Danbury, will be held May 29 from 5 to 9 p.m. in New Milford.
Festivities take place at 1st and 10 Sports Bar & Grill, 507 Danbury Road (Route 7 South).
Ten percent of the proceeds will go benefit the Healing Hearts Center, which has for nearly 20 years provided bereavement support to thousands of families with the mission of bringing hope and meaning back into their lives.
Offerings will include a raffle for a chance to win a 2014 Mercedes Benz CLA-250 from Mercedes Benz of Danbury. Tickets are $100, with the drawing to be held June 20.
All proceeds of the raffle benefit Regional Hospice and Home Care in support of its work to build the first and only state-of-the-art, private-room, family-focused hospice residence facility in the state of Connecticut, which will begin accepting patients in December.
The construction of the new building is being funded by donations, with only $4 million needed to complete the $12 million total cost.
Regional Hospice and Home Care is a nonprofit palliative care and home hospice agency
