Our 23rd Annual Auction held on November 7 at the Woburn Hilton raised $55,000 for our hospice programs.  The event featured North Shore Acappella who serenaded the audience with an array of musical hits in perfect pitch.  Guests were also treated to food stations serving Cesar salad, roast turkey, stir fry, and pasta.  The new format for the event was well received and the agency benefited from generous bids for items in both the silent and live auction.  Our 50/50 winner was Rita Walsh who won $3,425.  Rita has been a donor to our agency since 2007 in appreciation of the care we gave to her husband Leo at the Hospice House.  She has purchased 50/50 raffle tickets every year since 2009 and was very excited to hear that she was the winner this year!
