2018 Moonlight & Magnolias gala raises $110,000
“From the moment I realized I could no longer take care of my husband, God sent angels in the staff at Gordon Hospice House to take over. I felt at peace from that time on,” – Caregiver, in a recent note to Hospice of Iredell
Since 2005, the Gordon Hospice House has been providing care and comfort for families at end-of-life.
And ever since the doors of the hospice house opened, Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County (HPCIC) has been committed to the promise that lack of insurance is never a barrier to care.
On September 22, the community once again generously showed its support of that promise by raising nearly $110,000 for the 2018 Moonlight & Magnolias Gordon Hospice House Gala. The bi-annual event, which drew more than 250 guests, was held at Statesville Country Club and featured Southern-inspired cuisine, live music, a silent auction and more.
“We are incredibly grateful to all those who helped make this event such a success – our committee members, sponsors, auction donors and guests,” said Terri Phillips, HPCIC president and CEO. “This community has always shown tremendous support Hospice of Iredell, and the funds raised by this gala will help so many families receive extraordinary care and comfort at the Gordon Hospice House.”
