The Hospice League, our all-volunteer fundraising wing, has been working since 1989 to raise the funds to build and operate the Hospice Home. Over 100 volunteers help “funraise” at our thrift store and other events. Whatever your skill or interest may be, there’s an opportunity for everyone to help out, have fun, and raise money for a great cause.
Our Major Fundraisers:
The Hospice Thrift Store
The brand new Hospice Thrift Store is 67,000 square feet of bargains! Located at 2134 Hanford Road in Burlington, the store is open from 10 till 5 Tuesday through Saturday. And there are about as many volunteer opportunities as there are bargains! We need drivers for our trucks to pick up donations, sorters, fix-it folks, cashiers, sales staff, department heads and lots more. To get involved or to learn more, just call the store at 336-229-0490.
The Annual Golf Classic
This is the premiere golf tournament in the area and is touted to be one of the most efficiently-run charitable golf tournaments in the State with great food, giveaways, and door prizes to make for a first class event! Our tournament is always the Monday after Mother’s Day.
Entry fee: $1,500 per team sponsor or $375 for an individual to be matched up with other individuals to form a team. Hole/tee/green sponsorships are $300 with metal professionally crafted signs acknowledging your support. For a brochure of the tournament and/or additional information, please call Alanna Cousin at 336-532-0146 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer needs: sales of team and tee sponsorships, set up on the tournament day, seeking donations for the door prizes, or just buy a team and play! Call 336-532-0146 for more information.
Annual Luminary Display
Celebrate the meaning of the season with our annual luminary lighting at the Hospice Home and office. Over 1,000 luminaries grace our grounds every December as we remember those who have passed away in a display of light and love. Volunteer needs: luminary set-up and break-down, helping at the opening night festivities. Call 336-229-0490 to help or to purchase a luminary.
