Local Crafter Donates to Lewis County Hospice’s Epicurean Raffle
Local crafter and retired banker, Doug Brodie, has donated a delightful doll house for the exciting raffle drawings to be held Sunday, May 6th at this year’s Epicurean Delight. An annual fundraiser for Friends of Lewis County Hospice, this year’s Epicurean is expected to draw several hundred people to the Wax House at Snow Ridge in Turin. Seventeen restaurants and eateries will be on hand from 5:00 to 7:00 pm to offer tastings of their favorite dishes.
Tickets to the Epicurean may be purchased at the door, from any Friends of Lewis County Hospice Board Member or at Kinney Drug’s in Lowville from April 23 – May 4. The cost is $22 per person. Raffle tickets for the doll house, a local artisan’s basket and other quality items are on sale at a price of 6 for $10.00, 3 for $5.00, or $2.00 each.
If folks arrive early, they will be able to participate in the Silent Auction under the tent at the foot of the beautiful Snow Ridge ski slopes. Numerous items will be on display awaiting the highest bidders. As a special treat, D. J. Bruce Smith will provide background music for the occasion.
Doris Boliver, Chairperson of the Epicurean Delight, is pleased to announce the major sponsorship of NUNN’s Home Medical Equipment and the generous support of over 200 local businesses and individuals for this year’s event.
Donations Are Essential to Lewis County Hospice
Donations to Hospice are very important in a small community such as ours. Our services and care of the terminally ill would not be possible without the generosity of our donors, so please do consider making a donation to Friends of Lewis County Hospice.
Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance providers cover some of the costs of Hospice services, but we must count on our supportive community to help make up the difference.
Gifts can be made in memory of, or simply in honor of, a loved one. General donations are, of course, accepted, and all donations to charity are tax deductible. Planned gifts through an estate, will, or trust are all accepted and appreciated.
Friends Forever Fund
The Friends Forever Fund has been established with the goal of building and endowment fund so that Hospice will be available for generations to come. This restricted fund will not be used for annual operational expenses. The Friends Forever Fund gratefully accepts donations of $1000.00 or more. Smaller donations to Hospice are very much appreciated and will continue to be used for conventional operational expenses.
The Friends Forever Fund also recognizes that many people would like to give a substantial amount to Hospice in Lewis County but are not in a position to do so today. Many people would prefer to set up a way to give more at a later time in their lives, or after they have passed away. Friends Forever Fund therefore will accept deferred gifts, such as bequests in any amount. While bequests are the simplest and most common way to give a planned gift, other opportunities include: naming Friends of Lewis County Hospice as a life insurance beneficiary; gifts of appreciated securities; real estate; heirlooms; pension plans of IRA’s; trusts or annuities. We encourage you to consult with your tax advisor, attorney or financial planner to discuss the best method for you in your personal situation.
