House concert a fund-raising success


August 25, 2011

I’d like to thank Hospice of Haines board member Tim McDonough and his wife Ann Myren for hosting a house concert fundraiser at their lovely Lutak home recently. The concert raised about $2,000, which will go toward hospice services in the community. We’d also like to thank the terrifically talented and entertaining musicians who donated their time for the event, Bob and Jesse Krebs, Heidi Robichaud, and Tom Heywood, as well as all the generous hospice supporters who attended. Hospice volunteers are currently assisting about twenty Haines and Klukwan elders, thanks to the organizational efforts of volunteer coordinator Shannon McPhetres and our director Beth MacCready. The recent fundraising successes would not have happened if they weren’t both so good at what they do. We are blessed to have such a caring community with all of you extraordinary people in it.
