"Your Lucky Day" $10,000 Raffle

Our winners have been notified.  Thank you for supporting the "Your Lucky Day" raffle and the mission of Family Hospice!  We will offer this raffle again in 2021.


A Tasteful Gathering

Due to restrictions on physical gatherings, we are in the process of converting this event to a "plan your own tasting" format.  We are confirming our wineries, distilleries, breweries, and food vendors along with their exclusive offers and special gift.  A "kit" will be assembled that will include a checklist for places to visit at your own leisure.  

Our goal is to have this available for purchase in the fall. More information will follow about pricing and you will be made aware of the updates.  Thank you for your patience while we create an ideal tasting experience for you!
