Join Us at Our Fall Gala to Support Hospice Care!

With 2016 being the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Andrew and Eula Carlos Hospice Atlanta Center, this year’s In the Moment—A Celebration of Life will honor the dedication and passion of the Four Founders of the Center and their families: Mary Gellerstedt, Warren Jobe, the late Dr. Arthur Booth and the late Eula Carlos. These visionaries brought together corporate, board and community partners to make the beautiful Center a reality. The 2015 fall gala was a resounding success, so don’t miss your chance to be a part of this special celebration!
