Spirit of Life 2013 a Success!

The 2013 Spirit of Life event raised over $48,000 for the St. Clare Hospice House Resident Fund. Be sure to mark your calendars NOW for next year’s event!

December 4, 2014 at the Wilderness Conference Center, Wisconsin Dells

Guests enjoyed a gala event culminating with our rendition of “Let’s Make a Deal!”, a fun twist on the traditional game show in which lucky winners went home with packages valued at more than $1,000!

One lucky Golden Ticket Cookie raffle winner when home with $500 and four others won $100 each.

Bidders competed with one another for the chance to take home fabulous live and silent auction items which included baskets, packages and get-aways.

What is the St. Clare Hospice House Resident Fund?

Often referred to as “the best-kept health care secret of the community”, the St. Clare Hospice House operated by Home Health United sits tucked away behind St. Clare Meadows in Baraboo. Staffed around the clock, the House has four private rooms for patients receiving hospice services and who are unable to remain at home.

Medicare and most private insurances covers expenses associated with hospice services, but room and board fees at the Hospice House are generally not covered by insurance. Patients and families are responsible for those costs, which can exceed $200 per day. Home Health United has established a fund which provides assistance for those individuals who may not be able to afford these fees, which is why the annual “Spirit of life – Supporting the Hospice Journey” fundraiser is so important.

For more information sponsorship opportunities, please contact the Development Office at 608-276-7590 or Foundation@hhuvns.org.
