Hospice Cup XXIII

Hospice Cup XXIII, to be held Sept. 11, promises to be a great day for a great cause. Known as America's largest charity sailing regatta, Hospice Cup raised more than $530,000 last year.

Supporting Hospice Cup means that there will continue to be no out-of-pocket expenses for any patient or family seeking Hospice services. Hospice Cup funds help pay 25 to 30 percent of the expense not covered by Medicare or private insurance. These dollars enable Hospice to provide skilled, compassionate care, comfort and dignity to terminally ill patients and their loved ones, regardless of ability to pay.

When patients and families choose Hospice, they receive care unlike any other. Hospice goes to the patient, treats pain and symptoms, and eases the emotional and spiritual suffering of patients, families and loved ones. A team of doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, trained volunteers and bereavement counselors make it all possible.

The regatta, which is hosted by the Shearwater Sailing Club, will locally benefit Hospice of the Chesapeake and five other Hospice programs across Washington, Northern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. For more information on how you may support Hospice Cup, or to reach the Hospice in your area, contact Pam Cann at 202-289-1812 or go to www.hospicecup.org.
