Celebration of Caring

We are excited to announce VNA Care’s 2023 benefit, Celebration of Caring, will take place on Thursday, Sept. 21, at the Beechwood Hotel in Worcester. 

Last year, over $100,000 was raised to support home health and hospice services in the Worcester area and the Rose Monahan Hospice Home. We also celebrated a special milestone in 2022, the 25th Anniversary of the Rose Monahan Hospice Home. The Monahan Home opened as the first hospice residence in Central Massachusetts on Sept. 9, 1997, thanks to the philanthropic support of many individuals, businesses, foundations, and organizations. We are grateful for the community’s ongoing support that has enabled us to care for thousands of patients and their loved ones throughout the end-of-life journey and after their loss.

To participate as a sponsor please contact Karen Webber. Tickets on sale soon!
