Staff report

HomeCare Matters Home Health and Hospice will hold its 18th Annual Celebrity Waiter Dinner on at 6:30 p.m. on April 12, 2016, at the Crawford County Fairgrounds Youth Building. All proceeds from this event will be used to help patients who do not have the means to pay for medication, medical equipment, grief support, and other services not provided by insurance.

For over 30 years, HomeCare Matters Home Health and Hospice has been able to provide much-needed medications, supplies, as well as medical, emotional and spiritual support to both children and adults who are underinsured or have no insurance. Through generous donations from community members, along with fundraising efforts such as the Celebrity Waiter Dinner, HomeCare Matters continues to care for patients, regardless of their inability to pay.

This year’s casino-themed event will feature entertainment, silent and live auctions and a BBQ meal from Port-a-Cook Catering. HomeCare Matters invites you to be part of this annual fundraising event by donating an auction item, sponsoring the event, or purchasing tickets to this Vegas-style fundraiser. Tickets are on sale now and are $20 each. To purchase tickets, or for more information, please call 800 4-NURSES.

“The Celebrity Waiter Dinner is our biggest fundraiser of the year and attracts nearly 300 people,” comments Bert Maglott, HomeCare Matters Executive Director. “Every year, the community shows great support in this event which enables us to fulfill our mission.”

HomeCare Matters is proud to serve as the preferred Home Health and Hospice provider in Crawford, Richland, Marion, Huron, Morrow, Knox, Seneca and Wyandot counties.
