On Target for Quality of Life
Dart Tournament to Benefit Hospice
Hospice is end-of-life care for people of all ages, of any diagnosis, provided in the place they call home. While the majority of hospice care occurs in private homes, Ministry’s team also supplements the care provided by the residential staff at nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other community-based residences. Their expertise in pain and symptom control, as well as their ability to provide extended support to the family members brings great value to these collaborations. Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance companies provide some funding for this comprehensive care, but many who need it are under-insured or uninsured. As part of their mission, Ministry provides this important end-of-life care to anyone who is medically eligible, regardless of their ability to pay.
On Saturday, February 23, the third annual Chicago Style Dart Tournament, On Target for Quality of Life, will be held to raise funds for Ministry Home Care’s hospice program. The fun event will be held at Bucketheads Sports Bar & Grill, 46 N. Brown Street in Rhinelander. Registration will begin at 11:30am and the tournament at noon.
The tournament will feature a women’s doubles/luck of the draw tournament, men’s doubles/luck of the draw; as well as open luck of the draw to follow. Cost is $6 per person per tournament, of which $1 of every fee will be donated to hospice. In addition, there will be a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and plenty of action for everyone in the community to enjoy. All raffle proceeds will be donated to Ministry. Spectators and competitors are welcome to come to this fun event. For more information, please contact Trisha Schultz (715-493-7119) or Melissa Houg (715-361-2263).
