“Hospice of Acadiana has been providing quality end-of-life care and services to our community for nearly 40 years. It is an incredible organization with services well beyond what most people know about. The resources they provide are so important not just for their patients and families, but for our entire community,” said Paul Hebert, Member, Hospice of Acadiana Foundation Board of Directors.
The raffle is Hospice of Acadiana’s largest fundraiser of the year. The funds raised help to pay for the care and services that aren’t covered by insurance. As the only nonprofit hospice in our community, Hospice of Acadiana provides care to anyone medically eligible – regardless of their ability to pay.
“The stay-at-home order has definitely affected ticket sales, so we are hoping this extension will give us the opportunity to get the word out and sell a few more tickets. We know things are tight for everyone, but one $20 ticket goes a long way in helping us provide care to those who need it most,” said Kacee Thompson, Executive Director, Hospice of Acadiana Foundation.
Hospice of Acadiana, established in 1983, is Louisiana’s oldest hospice and palliative care provider, and the only non-profit provider in Acadiana. As a non-profit provider, patients receive all of the care they need, regardless of the cost or their ability to pay. HOA also offers several programs and services to the community at-large free of charge, including: Grief Counseling, Loss and Transition Workshops, Camp Brave Hearts, Pet Peace of Mind, and the “We Honor Veterans” Program.
