CHP Home Care & Hospice is hosting an online fundraising auction April 16-30. The auction includes designer handbags, a Myrtle Beach trip, and other items on sale to support hospice patient care.
As a nonprofit, CHP Home Care & Hospice works with patients and families regardless of their financial situation. The CHP Hospice Patient Care Fund pays for hundreds of thousands of dollars in uncovered expenses throughout its 15-county service area.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, CHP had to forgo most of its fundraising events in 2020. This includes its annual Beacon of Hope dinner/auction, Christmas Bazaar & Bake Sale, Sewing for Hospice sales, and Ohio Has Talent 2021; plus several events held by CHP branch offices.
“Our patient care fund lost revenue from canceling events, but the needs continue,” said Brent Tow, CHP President, and CEO. “We encourage new supporters and those who have supported us before, to participate in this online auction.”
Tow says this fundraiser is a vital part of CHP’s efforts to better serve local patients and families. The goal is to raise $46,000.
Those interested must register to place a bid at the auction website, www.auctria.com/auction/CHPHandbagsforHospice. Bidding is open Apr. 16-30. Tax-deductible donations may also be made to CHP Hospice on the website.
