Hospice hosts successful event
We at Coastal Hospice are grateful for – and proud of – the young leaders in our community. They are taking the local tradition of generosity and making it their own.
Last week a team of young professionals, led by Cole Taustin, who manages Embers and Blu Crabhouse and Kellie Meehan, who works for Mann Properties, hosted Brews & Bites, a very successful fundraising party to benefit Coastal Hospice at the Ocean.
Committee members, all of [which] had full-time responsibilities and many who are parents of small children, created an event that attracted a generous crowd and showcased some of our region’s best restaurants and craft breweries. The event brought in more than $9,000 from sponsors and guests.
They didn’t do it alone; long-time event volunteers and staff supported the effort – from selling raffle tickets to babysitting the kids. Brews & Bites was a true team effort, and the benefits will be felt for a long time.
Coastal Hospice can meet its goal of putting patients and their families first, thanks to a generous community. It is truly inspiring to find that a new generation of volunteer leaders is continuing a tradition of caring.
