Caldwell Hospice Appreciation Gospel Jamboree

LENOIR, NC (July 26, 2018) — The Caldwell Hospice Appreciation Gospel Jamboree is an opportunity for our community to show appreciation to Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care for the care they have provided for over 36 years, and to partner with them to ensure that care continues regardless of ability to pay. The community is invited to the free concert on Friday, August 17, 2018, 7pm, at the J.E. Broyhill Civic Center, 1913 Hickory Blvd., Lenoir, NC.

Performers include Rev. Steve Warren, David Johnson and Dixie Dawn, and The Mylon Hayes Family. Each group will perform individually and close the evening together by leading the audience in “A Resting Place Along Life’s Way,” the song written by Danny Hendrix for Caldwell Hospice’s “Bless This House” service in 2009.

A program book to promote the event has been published and includes ads purchased by local companies, organizations, and individuals to sponsor the event. There will be no admission to attend the Gospel Jamboree, but donations will be accepted.

“Thanks so very much to everyone who has had a part in making this event successful,” said Danny Hendrix, event organizer. “Proceeds will go to Caldwell Hospice to help continue the wonderful work they do, including caring for those who are unable to pay for their services.”

In 2016-17, Caldwell Hospice provided $1,030,566 in patient care for which there was no reimbursement.

“Once again, we at Caldwell Hospice are amazed at the support of our community,” said Caldwell Hospice CEO Cathy Swanson. “This event is a labor of love for all involved, and we want you—the organizers, performers, program sponsors and the community who attends—to know how much we appreciate all that you do for us, our patients and families.”

“While many areas are losing their not-for-profit local hospice, ours has stayed strong, and you and your support are the reason,” continued Swanson. “Caldwell Hospice provides care for all who need and desire our help, regardless of ability to pay. It is a commitment the founders of the organization made in the earliest beginnings of our work, and it is that commitment to service as a ministry that sustains us even today and into the future.”

Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care, the only not-for-profit hospice care provider in Caldwell County, provides expanded resources for you and your family. Referrals for palliative and hospice care may be made by the patients themselves, family members, friends, clergy, or physicians.
