The 2017 Community Hospice Gumbo Cook-Off Fundraiser kicks off at 9 am on February 11th.

This fundraiser is to assist hospice patients and their families with funding to offset any expenses they may incur throughout their duration of care. With your help, items such as funeral expenses, utility bills, medications, ramps, and much more can be provided to patients.

Many families have trouble coping with a loved one with a terminal illness, the last thing one wants is families worrying about unexpected expenses.
Every gift, no matter what size, is a blessing.
