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.

Americana & Blues Benefit a Big Success!

So VERY VERY thankful for Pam and Jeffrey Bickel for arranging another amazing Americana & Blues Benefit for Hospice of the Golden Isles. It was so much fun! This is their 8th year of hosting this fundraiser for us. And, it could be the biggest year yet! We are still adding up the results, but early numbers are very exciting!  The other benefit from this event is of course the awareness it creates in the community. That is priceless! Over the two day event, countless people came up to us and shared their hospice stories of love and compassion. That’s what it’s all about. Our mission is to care for our neighbors when they need support the most! So many people said they couldn’t have made it without the help of our wonderful team. Special thanks to Mary Starr from Coastal Illustrated for all your media exposure, The Cash Box Kings for donating a portion of their CD & T-shirt sales, and the following folks who donated items for our silent auction: Mixed Nuts (Charlene Stahl,) Suite Retreat 104 Spa and Salon, Kelby Haugabook (artist,) Trish Burns (Doggie Bed Designer,) Golden Isles Bracelet Company, and Jim Gilbert (110 Doodles by Jim Gilbert.)
