Hops for Hospice 2017 Recap

Thank you to all who contributed to the success of the 6th annual Hops for Hospice. Nearly 400 guests attended and $140,000 was raised to support UnityPoint Hospice and Taylor House - a new record!

We appreciate our Hops committee members, UnityPoint at Home leadership, UnityPoint Health - Des Moines Foundation staff, our wonderful UnityPoint Health employees who supported Hops and the large number of volunteers who donated their time to make this event a success.

A special thanks to R&R Realty Group for being our presenting sponsor, our continued partner with Iowa Beverage Systems and the rest of our sponsors, underwriters and in-kind supporters. Their generosity ensures that no one is turned away from our Hospice services because of the inability to pay.

We've created a special video to highlight the night as well as the impact your support has for our patients and families. If you would like to view this powerful video, go to: www.hopsforhospicedsm.com
