(SOUTH HAVEN) – On Saturday, August 3, hundreds of community members and volunteers attended the annual Hospice at Home Benefit Wine and Beer Tasting for Caring Circle which took place on the property of Dan and Mary Nulty, along the South Beach bluff in South Haven. Through sponsorships, ticket sales, and event activities, a total of $100,675 was raised in support of hospice care for the community of South Haven and surrounding areas.

Attendees generously donated a record-breaking $29,225 at the event to fund 167 days of hospice care for those in need. Local artist Sabine’ Krummel created a masterful painting, “Guided Whisper” which was available for day of care donors to sign. The framed painting will be displayed in the Caring Circle office in South Haven.

“We are so grateful for the generosity of many community members and volunteers who have made this event a success year after year,” said Melinda Gruber, PhD, president, Caring Circle and vice president, continued care services, Spectrum Health Lakeland. “We are pleased to have raised 25% more than last year’s event which will allow us to continue meeting the end-of-life care needs for those in our community, regardless of their ability to pay.”
