Hudson Hospice Volunteers was established in 1980 to bring the concept of hospice — providing care that focuses on assisting those who are terminally ill with the ability to live what’s left of their lives as fully as possible — to the people of Hudson County. Though Hudson Hospice provides no direct medical or nursing care, it partners with other programs and agencies that do provide direct hospice care and supplements those programs with a variety of volunteer services, and financial assistance when needed. The Auxiliary was started in 1982 and its primary purpose is to raise funds for those hospice families who require financial assistance. The Auxiliary’s members meet once a month to plan and hold four fundraisers each year.

Tickets for this Friday’s “A Night at the Races” fundraiser are $100 per person and may be obtained by contacting Hudson Hospice at 201-433-6225. The event will include a buffet dinner, open bar, dancing, full card of horse racing, and prizes.
