2024 Epicurean Delight

2023 Light Up A Life 


The 2023 Epicurean Delight sponsored by Friends of Lewis County Hospice was a resounding success with approximately 175 people in attendance.  The FOLCH Board members would like to thank the Lowville Elks Lodge #1605 for being such gracious hosts for the event, along with providing a delicious meal.  Thanks also to Jeb’s and Red Barn Meats for providing appetizers, to Julie Post, Julie Harris and Carrie Gunn for the amazing desserts, and to Kasidee and Bill (and Ava) for the entertaining music.

Also, a huge thank you to all who donated to the event as either a Sponsor or a Patron, and to all those who donated raffle items.

The event also included the presentation of a donation of $150,000 from Friends of Lewis County Hospice, received by Jerry Cayer, CEO of Lewis County Health System and Tammy Suiter, Hospice Patient Coordinator, toward the Lewis County Hospice Program.
