Choice Financial’s “Go Hawaiian for Hospice” lunch fundraiser, held June 27 in Fargo, generated $133,671 for Hospice of the Red River Valley (HRRV). This year’s event brings the five-year total amount raised to $362,453. 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 2,300 people.
“I’d like to thank everyone 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 HRRV, so we’re honored to help this organization care for those in need.”
The money raised provides care for patients and their families and supports HRRV’s grief support services, as well as other non-reimbursed needs.
