Hospice of the Chesapeake’s Caring for Life Gala was held on April 22 in Hanover, Maryland. The event raised over $550,000 to support the organization’s hospice, supportive, and grief care programs and services provided to patients and families in Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, and Prince George’s counties.

The gala was held at The Hall at Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland and was an evening of elegance and inspiration. Guests enjoyed dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions, and musical entertainment by The Reagan Years.

The event also included a video featuring Hospice of the Chesapeake Board Member and longtime friend of the organization, Joyce Phillip. In the video, Phillip shared how her grandmother’s death led her to a personal mission to ensure people understand and choose how they experience living with advanced illness and end of life.
