WHO: Choice Financial invites the community to the fourth annual “Go Hawaiian for Hospice” luau lunch in support of Hospice of the Red River Valley (HRRV).
WHAT: For a suggested donation of $5, attendees will feast on a pig roast, baked potato, fresh pineapple, Hawaiian Punch and a frozen treat, with all proceeds directly benefitting HRRV.
“We were absolutely thrilled with the amount of support the community showed for our Go Hawaiian for Hospice fundraiser last year,” Erv Inniger, board member and senior director of community relations for Choice Financial, said. “This year’s Go Hawaiian fundraising goal is $70,000. Sue Kasowski of Kasowski Farms chose to partner with Choice Financial after HRRV served both of her brothers and step-father. “Hospice has a special place in my heart,” Kasowski shared. “My brothers and step-father received wonderful care, and the support we received from Hospice of the Red River Valley was invaluable.”
Last year, approximately 1,000 people attended the event; as a result, Choice Financial presented HRRV with a check for $64,068.
In 2015, HRRV cared for 1,557 patients on their end-of-life journey throughout 29 counties in North Dakota and Minnesota. The Go Hawaiian for Hospice luau fundraiser helps provide funding for HRRV to offer end-of-life care for terminally ill patients and support for their families. As a not-for-profit organization, HRRV provides care to anyone who meets the medical guidelines for hospice care, regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay. Donations and community support make this possible.
