Our Fall Event
An Evening to Support Hospice Atlanta

Why Support Our Fall Gala?

Each year this benefit—In The Moment, A Celebration of Life—celebrates the work of Visiting Nurse | Hospice Atlanta and honors volunteers, sponsors and community leaders who enable our organization to serve the residents of greater Atlanta. Proceeds benefit our hospice patients and their families, including those who do not have the means to afford our care.

2018 Save-The-Date

Check back here in early summer 2018 for the time and place of our next fall event!

2017 Fall Gala recap

More than 300 attendees gathered in the Stave Room at American Spirit Works to raise funds to support Hospice Atlanta and honor long-time supporter and former Atlanta Mayor Sam Massell. After watching touching video testimonials introduced by emcee Bill Liss of 11Alive, attendees bid on array of auction items and participated in a lively Fund-The-Need, which helped us exceed our fundraising goals to purchase much-needed supplies and equipment for Hospice Atlanta’s patients. The evening ended with Sam Massell reiterating his support and extolling the virtues of having Hospice Atlanta Center located in his beloved Buckhead.
