HOSPICE OF MURRAY COUNTY ANNUAL SPRING BENEFIT

On April 27, 2022, Hospice of Murray County held their Annual Spring Benefit. In years past, many might have remembered the spring benefit being an auction, but it had changed to dueling pianos, a play, a magician and even a comedy duo. The last couple of years, due to COVID, Hospice had to get creative. Just because COVID hit our area and our ability to gather was limited, Hospice of Murray County never stopped visiting and caring for their patients. Our staff was still “Front Line Workers” providing care to those people who were in the end stages of a terminal illness. Which is why our communities have seen the Annual Spring Benefit switch gears again to a Drive Thru Burger Meal – in which Hospice has partnered with the Murray County Cattlemen’s Association to provide a tasty grilled burger and sides.
