Friends of VNA Hospice Auxiliary host this annual spring luncheon. The event is a memorable day for all who attend. A "tea" style luncheon is followed by a keynote speaker and grand Chinese auction. Funds raised at the Friendship Luncheon help provide personal needs of our patients and their families, such as special wishes, remembering significant occasions, and providing ongoing educational programs for caregivers and volunteers who deal with end of life issues.
