Misty's Wish 2014Honor Your Loved One With A Hospice Hero Event

Hospice Heroes are people like you. They are companies, organizations, school and community groups that organize fundraising events to honor a loved one and give back to Hospice of the Western Reserve.

 Your fundraising support helps us provide exceptional care to all, regardless of ability to pay and  make each day better for the patients and families we serve.

Raise funds. It can be as simple as selling candy bars, as social as a luncheon or as big as a charity concert or golf/bowling outing. However you can imagine raising money, we’re here to help.

Here are some fundraising ideas:

  • Dress down days at work/schoolNancy Cannon 2014
  • Wine and cheese party
  • Golf outings
  • Bake sales
  • Bowling
  • Concert
  • Cake walk
  • “Rock”-a-thon
  • Sell candy bars
  • Direct a drive by collecting and donate items on our Wish List. Every item donated helps improve the comfort of our patients and families.

Be creative! Use your talents and interests to raise funds in a way that’s fun for you. Hospice Heroes can gather together to produce a one-time event or repeat a fundraiser year after year.
