We are privileged to welcome Councilman Corey O'Connor as our emcee!   

Corey O’Connor was elected to represent City Council District 5 and was sworn in on January 3, 2012. As councilman, O’Connor is proud to have been behind many legislation endeavors such as: establishing an HIV/AIDS Commission; working cooperatively to create an Assessment Appeal Assistance Program; sponsoring legislation to end parking meter enforcement after 6 PM; and launching “Corey’s Crew," a group consisting of volunteers who troubleshoot, clean lots, help senior citizens, and assist at community events. As Chair of City Council’s Committee on Urban Recreation, O’Connor has toured almost every city park and visited dozens of Recreation and Senior Centers.


The Memorial Boat Cruise will celebrate the past lives of family and friends.  We will board the ship at 9:30 am and set sail on our rivers at 10:00 am. Each guest will receive a full breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, fruit, danish, croissants, coffee, tea, and juice, courtesy of Friends of Anne Mullaney.  In addition, everyone will get a flower in memory of their loved one, a Mall at Robinson Coupon Book with 40 offers, and a $10 coupon for Buca di Beppo.  There will be an Activity Area where kids can make a craft, courtesy of Julian Gray Associates.  And while aboard the boat, try your luck at a treasure chest of wonderful raffle prizes and a 50/50 Raffle!

All of the monies raised are allocated to patient and family services.  Your support enables us to deliver the highest quality of care to patients, fund bereavement programs such as Camp Healing Hearts for grieving children, and educate the broader community about the benefits of hospice care. Family Hospice is the largest nonprofit hospice in Western Pennsylvania, caring for those nine counties.
