I’m pleased to announce that the Friends of Hospice (FoH) is presenting an evening of food, musical entertainment, and silent auction to raise funds for the remodeling of Room 112 at Mendocino Coast District Hospital into “Room with a Soul” for those who need end of life care, as well as those who are healing. The event takes place on Saturday, May 19th, at the Portuguese Hall. Festivities begin at 5 pm and a family style spaghetti dinner will be served from 5:30 to 8 pm.

An evening of entertainment

Conceived as an evening’s entertainment, the event starts with music and an open bar at 5 pm. Appetizers will accompany entertainment before, during, and after the main course in a bistro setting. Local wines, as well as beers from the North Coast Brewing Company, have been donated for the event.

Family style dinner, musical entertainment and more

Dinner will feature homemade pasta sauces with options for vegetarian and gluten-free. “Mouthwatering, hand-made meatballs will be abundant, as well as family-style service of bread, salad, and small desserts,” notes FoH volunteer Cynthia Wall. A silent auction and raffle will add to the excitement, with businesses and individuals contributing generous gifts and certificates. At 5 pm local song-man, Harry Rosensteel, will sing songs we all remember. Then to end with a sizzle, “Torch Jazz” featuring Ira Rosenberg on piano with Zida Borcich vocalizing, picks up the pace at 6:30 and closes the place down at 9PM.

    I have been the Director of MCDH Home Health and Hospice for the past 15 years. Friends of Hospice has always had a key role in our Hospice program. They provide special items and support for our dying patients. Now, Friends of Hospice is expanding their role by remodeling a room at the hospital, a “Room With A Soul”. I urge everyone to join us at the Spaghetti Feast on May 19th to support this worthy cause.
