Hops For Hospice to Benefit UnityPoint Hospice

More than 20 craft beers, appetizers and entertainment provided by the Brazilian 2wins will be featured at Hops for Hospice with proceeds benefiting UnityPoint Hospice.

The inaugural event will be 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20 in McBride Hall at Allen College. Tickets are $50 each and can be purchased through the Allen Foundation by calling (319) 235-3960.

One hundred percent of money raised at Hops for Hospice will be used toward the construction of the Samantha Weber Memorial Hospice Suite at Allen Hospital. Weber passed away last year and is remembered for serving patients with caring arms and a bright smile during her time as a hospice nurse. Hops for Hospice will help provide hospice patients a comfortable environment for their final stage of life that Weber would be proud of.

Support and attendance at this event will send a strong message to UnityPoint Hospice staff, volunteers, patients and families that our community is behind providing tremendous hospice care to all who seek it.
