Hurricane Dorian

We are thankful Hurricane Dorian passed us by with little effect on our beloved Golden Isles as other communities did not fare as well.  With three hurricanes and one tropical storm hitting our coast in as many years, we are grateful for the reprieve. On Monday (9/2), in response to the mandatory order for evacuation, Hospice of the Golden Isles transferred our Hospice House patients to hospice facilities further inland. Our team worked diligently with home patients to make their evacuation and emergency preparedness plans, and we signed contracts with other hospice providers who were on-call to provide services for patients who traveled out of our service area. On Thursday (9/5), the mandatory evacuation order was lifted and HGI resumed normal operations on Friday (6/6). Home hospice teams resumed patient visits and Hospice House patients are being transferred back to our facility. Many thanks to the Glynn County EMA and our community for your support of our efforts to keep our patients safe through the storm.  

Another Successful RE Thomas Memorial Benefit!

The Thomas Family proves their dedication to Hospice of the Golden Isles each year by honoring the memory of their beloved patriarch, Mr. R.E. Thomas.  This year was no exception at the 14th annual memorial benefit.  Joyce and Johnny Thomas enlist their extended family and friends to pull off their profitable shindig at the Brunswick Shrine Club each year.  With prime rib and fried shrimp catered by Mudcat Charlie’s, fun, fellowship and live entertainment, they can’t go wrong. This special family has raised over $250,000 for HGI over the years and have established themselves as our family too!  THANKS Y’ALL!!

Big Thanks for Bites & Bands!

What a great night for Hospice of the Golden Isles (HGI)! In front of a sold out crowd, patrons enjoyed the sounds of the Randall Bramblett Band, Strawberry Flats with John Keane, and the Pine Box Dwellers while tasting great food from area chefs and drinking lively libations from local and regional distributors. This was the first year that the St. Simons Food and Spirits Festival hosted a one day event in the spring. Back to back hurricanes, helped influence the decision to try a new time and feel for the event that’s been going on for the past eight years in various forms. Special thanks to our festival board members and event organizer Beth Williams for the countless hours of planning that went into making this event such a success, and to our HGI volunteers who helped with jobs ranging from emptying trash bags to manning our silent auction. We also so very appreciative of the local chefs and business owners who consistently step up to support our non-profit by donating their time, staff, and talents toward making this event such a great fundraiser for HGI.

Dove Society Party 2019!

Our 2019 Dove Society Party was an unforgettable night thanks to the generosity and entertaining spirit of our host Frank Salvati. Not only did he open up his home to our Dove Society members again, paying for the event, and making a donation, he also met our match challenge of $5,000 made by an anonymous donor. THANK YOU FRANK! The view from Frank’s new dock was spectacular as the sun was setting over the Frederica River. Guests were able to enjoy wonderful drinks and heavy hors’ doeuvres from Halyards Catering, while listening to the sweet sounds of Richard Stratton strumming away on his acoustic guitar. Special thanks for the donations to our silent auction from artist Marden Headley, Davis Love, and Mixed Nuts.
