Memorial Boat Cruise

Thank you to all who joined us on the 2nd Annual Memorial Boat Cruise.  We couldn't have asked for better weather or better company.  We hope to see you next year. 

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.

Thank you to our sponsors:
