Hospice organization's Evening of Elegance celebrates 40 years
January 16, 2020
WALLA WALLA—It all began with a group of volunteers, donated space, and the dream of caring for people in the most vulnerable stage of their lives. That’s how Walla Walla Community Hospice (WWCH) began in 1980. It’s WWCH’s 40th birthday and you can help celebrate.
Tickets are now on sale for An Evening of Elegance, the annual wine dinner and auction supporting the work of Hospice. This year’s theme is “Cheers to 40 Years” and takes place on Saturday, February 8th from 5:30-9 pm at the Marcus Whitman Hotel & Conference Center. The color scheme is black and gold and the theme subtly suggests a 40th birthday.
The evening begins with a social period to chat with friends and community members, play some fun games, participate in the large silent auction, nibble on some appetizers and drink delicious Walla Walla wine. At 7 p.m. the action moves to the dining room where there will be a delicious dinner and dessert.
The event supports some of the organizations key programs including free grief and bereavement support services, region-wide educational classes, presentations, and workshops on end-of-life care and planning.
Walla Walla Community Hospice is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide compassionate care for those at the end of life and support for their caretakers and loved ones. WWCH serves Columbia, Walla Walla, and NE Umatilla counties.
