Kentucky Derby Event Set to Help Hospice Patients

If you can’t make it to Churchill Downs to watch the Kentucky Derby in person, May 5th, another option is the Hospice Circle of Love Mint Julep Jubilee. The fundraiser will kick off at Nick Benson Ballroom at 4:00 PM. Participants will find Southern music, Southern food and drinks and a “betting” window to add to the atmosphere. A live bugler will call the horses to the paddock just before the race is shown on a big screen. Casino games will be available to play following the race.

Tickets are $100.00. Proceeds will help pay for care for Circle of Love patients that don’t have a Medicare or insurance benefit for hospice. To order tickets call Julie at 580-234-2273 or email

Sponsorship opportunities are available as well.

Hospice Circle of Love Seeking Volunteers

Hospice Circle of Love is seeking volunteers to provide comfort and compassion to hospice patients, help out in the office and lend a hand with fundraisers.
A volunteer training class has been scheduled for the first two Thursdays in February.  It will take place February 1st and February 8th from 9 to Noon at the Circle of Love office, 314 S. Third. Volunteer recruits need to attend both sessions.

“Our volunteers make a significant contribution to our operation. We are so grateful for all that they do, as are our hospice families. Whether they are reading to a patient in the nursing home or visiting with one in the home while their caregiver runs errands, they provide an invaluable service,” commented Volunteer Coordinator Julie Nelson.

All hospice volunteers are required to go through a training class. Areas covered include details about job duties, the history of hospice, privacy rights, family dynamics, infection control, psychological issues surrounding death and dying, physical symptoms and more.

To obtain a volunteer application, call 234-2273.
