Nathan Adelson Hospice, the largest non-profit hospice in Nevada, is gearing up for its 18th Annual Wine & Food Tasting Extravaganza, being held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 12. This popular annual fundraiser benefits the hospice’s Pediatric Program and Families in Need Program (Photos are from a previous year’s event).
Community members and supporters are invited to sample a variety of delectable wines and cuisine from some of Southern Nevada’s most notable restaurants, while enjoying music and a silent auction. The event is being held in the spacious showroom of Gaudin Porsche, 6800 Redwood St., in Las Vegas.
“We are grateful for the continued generous support of the community and we appreciate Gaudin Porsche’s longstanding commitment to hosting this fantastic event,” said Nathan Adelson Hospice President and CEO Carole Fisher. “As the only non-profit hospice in Southern Nevada, every dollar raised goes back to patient care and support for our families.”
The Pediatric Hospice Program is designed to meet the special needs of children with life-threatening conditions, as well as their families. The program provides symptom management and emotional support. The Pediatric Team is committed to quality of life and minimizing fear and uncertainty. Among services provided are: 24-hour, on-call availability of a hospice medical professional; care in the home; pain and symptom management; medications, equipment and supplies; support to caregivers; inpatient pediatric care; bereavement counseling; spiritual care; and psycho-social support services.
The Families in Need Program provides immediate resources for necessities such as food, clothing or paying a utility bill. In many cases, hospice patients do not have time to wait for assistance; for them, every minute counts. The Families in Need Program allows dollars to be disbursed swiftly for urgent patient needs. The program reflects a commitment to adding more life to our patients’ days.
VIP tickets are $150 per person, which includes the VIP Reserve Experience pre-reception from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. The VIP reception will feature wines from Johnson Brothers of Nevada and a variety of cheeses from Murray’s Cheese. General admission tickets to the event are $75 per person. Event attendees must be 21 years of age or older.
