Choice Financial’s “Go Hawaiian for Hospice” lunch fundraiser, held June 28 in Fargo, generated $109,462.15 for Hospice of the Red River Valley. Attendees of the luau-style lunch enjoyed a roast pig, baked potato, fresh pineapple, Hawaiian punch and a frozen treat. The event also featured a memorial wall where guests were invited to remember their loved ones. Attendance was estimated at 1,400 people.
“I’d like to thank all the wonderful people who came out to support Hospice of the Red River Valley,” Erv Inniger, senior director of community relations at Choice Financial said. “Hospice has a special place in my heart after seeing the care they provide. Choice Financial has locations up and down the Red River Valley, in the same communities served by Hospice of the Red River Valley, so we’re honored to help this organization serve those in need of end-of-life care.”
The money raised provides care for patients and their families and supports Hospice of the Red River Valley’s grief support services, as well as other non-reimbursed needs.
