SALISBURY, MD – NOVEMBER 18, 2019 – Coastal Hospice hosted two fundraising events this autumn to benefit the Macky & Pam Stansell House of Coastal Hospice. Now that the first residential hospice facility on the Lower Shore has opened, all fundraising dollars will go towards charitable care at the Stansell House.
The annual “Blues on the Bay” fundraiser took place on September 25 and celebrated the opening of the long-awaited Stansell House. The well-attended event was held at Macky’s Bayside Bar & Grill in Ocean City, MD and raised more than $19,000. During the event, Coastal Hospice debuted a video featuring the family of the first patient to stay at the Stansell House, a very moving tribute to the patient and the experience.
Coastal Hospice held the inaugural Coastal Walk & 5K at Assateague State Park on October 12. With more than 60 people in attendance for the two-mile walk and 5K fun run, the event raised $9,500.
“We are touched by the support of both of these events by our donors and volunteers, and the caring and dedication that have contributed to the opening of the Stansell House,” said President Alane Capen. “Every donation to Coastal Hospice touches someone in need of care.”
