Victors Hosted Thanksgiving Eve Block Party Benefiting Compassionate Care Fund
On Wednesday, November 22, Victors (109 South Dargan Street, Florence) hosted its annual Thanksgiving Eve Block Party. For the second year in a row, the event’s proceeds supported HopeHealth’s charitable funds. In lieu of an entry fee, attendees were asked to provide a minimum donation of $5 for the HopeHealth Compassionate Care Fund.
On the importance of the Thanksgiving Eve event, Bria Welch, Victors marketing manager, said, “It is so fulfilling to know that our efforts are appreciated by the many people who come to the event every year! Most importantly, we have the opportunity to be a platform for the Compassionate Care Fund and make a difference!”
The Compassionate Care Fund exists to bridge the gap to quality health care by contributing to patients’ unmet needs. Within the Compassionate Care Fund is HopeHealth’s Children of Hope program, designed to provide patient families in need with Christmas gifts and household items to bring holiday joy.
During the month of July, HopeHealth employees donated $45,150 through the Christmas in July campaign to support the Children of Hope Program. The additional funds raised at the Thanksgiving Eve event, in part, will allow HopeHealth to provide additional gifts to patient families identified as having significant need.
Nicole Echols, HopeHealth director of external affairs, shared her gratitude for Victors choosing to support the Compassionate Care Fund this year. “Partnering with Victors for Thanksgiving Eve enables us to have a festive community event while supporting HopeHealth’s incredibly important Compassionate Care Fund.”
