Event proceeds benefit the Sharing Wishes Fund, which helps make wishes come true for hospice patients and their families.

"Whether it's a special family-and-friends gathering or a visit from a loved one, donations help make wishes become a reality," said Elena Kezelis, executive director of Memorial Medical Center Foundation.

The goal of hospice is to focus on quality of life for every patient - physically, emotionally and spiritually.

"Much time is spent reflecting with patients and families about their memories, hopes and dreams. With the help of the Sharing Wishes Fund, we have fulfilled the wishes of many hospice patients," Kezelis said. 

The wishes vary - a hot air balloon ride, a day trip with family and friends or a long-awaited ride in a Cadillac. See more of the wishes we have granted.

Plan to attend Memorial's 5th annual Hospice Gala and help make the wishes of hospice patients and their families come true!
