A Toast to Honor VNA Care Network and Rose Monahan Hospice Home

For 125 years, local donors have made a tremendous impact on the health of Central Massachusetts residents. Those very first donations in 1892 established one of the first visiting nurse associations in the country that is known today as VNA Care Network.

The community's continued support has sustained our work caring for people of all ages, and enabled us to open the Rose Monahan Hospice Home 20 years ago as the first hospice residence in Central Massachusetts. 

We marked these milestone anniversaries at "A Toast to Honor VNA Care Network and Rose Monahan Hospice Home" on Oct. 26, 2017, at the Beechwood Hotel, Worcester.  The benefit featured live music by Cara Brindisi and Worcester Jazz Collective, distinguished speakers, and champagne toast.

The event was part of a yearlong campaign, "Honoring Out Past, Investing In Our Future," to address immediate needs that will make an impact on the health and wellness of Worcester area residents today and into the future. Through the generosity of the following donors, the campaign has raised more than $460,000.
