WEST PALM BEACH, FL - Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation and Hospice by the Sea Foundation Resale Shops are celebrating their 30 year anniversary of providing fashionable finds, all while giving back to the community.

The upscale, newly renovated shops will be hosting quarterly customer appreciation days which will include complimentary bites and beverages, along with discounts and prizes for customers who attend. Store locations throughout the Palm Beaches are in Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Juno Beach.

The first event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 18, from 12 - 4pm at all three shop locations.

Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation and Hospice by the Sea Foundation Resale Shops have been an integral part of not only the communities that they serve, but in helping patients receive the hospice care that they deserve. The organization receives donations of all types from charitable community members, including clothing, houseware, furniture and vehicles, which are then sold to the public. The proceeds from the goods sold directly benefit hospice patients and their families, including extraordinary comfort care, music therapy and individual and family bereavement services.

Tax-deductible donations are accepted at all three locations and large items are available for pickup at your home at no cost, by trusted employees. For information on how to donate or to locate your nearest Resale Shop, please visit www.hpbcf.org/resale or call 561-494-6814.

Boca Raton, FL – Local members of the Palm Beach community attended the first in a series of informative events titled ‘Country Club Cocktails’, to enjoy an evening of enlightenment in support of Hospice by the Sea Foundation.

The invitation-only event was held at Saint Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, which included drinks and hors d’oeuvres along with an informative speech by Dr. Leonard Hock Jr., Chief Medical Officer for Trustbridge specializing in Palliative Care and Advanced Illness Management. Dr. Hock touched on topics such as quality of life, healthcare decisions and rights as a patient and caregiver.

Attendees and donors were welcomed and hosted by Bernie and Billi Marcus, long-time supporters of Hospice by the Sea. The series of cocktail receptions will continue at other local Palm Beach area country clubs, each hosted by a different member.

“We are thrilled to support such a wonderful organization along with spreading the word to the community,” said Bernie Marcus, co-founder of The Home Depot and host of the evening’s event. “This organization is very near and dear to our hearts, and we sincerely believe in the exceptional services they provide.”

Hospice by the Sea and Hospice of Palm Beach County provide services to patients, their families and members of the community, regardless of their ability to pay.

“Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the entire community benefits from patient care and bereavement programs that far exceed what is covered under the Medicare hospice benefit,” added Greg Leach, President of Hospice by the Sea Foundation. “We can’t thank them enough.”
