Easter Egg Hunt for Adults to Benefit Southeast Hospice


03.08.2013

Easter eggs aren’t just for kids.  Adults, 21 years of age and older can hunt for more than 4,000 plastic eggs – each of which will be a prize winner! 

SoutheastHEALTH Foundation’s annual Easter Egg Hunt for Adults will be held Saturday, March 23, from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Bavarian Halle in Jackson. Tickets are $25 and include a Cook’s BBQ dinner, silent auction, oral auction and dance, with music by Main Event Sounds.

Proceeds will benefit Southeast Hospice. Centuries ago, a hospice was a place of shelter for ill or weary travelers on difficult journeys. Today, the word “hospice” is used to describe a special approach in caring for individuals who are on a journey through life’s final stages.

Since 1986, when Southeast Hospital introduced the concept of hospice care to the region, Southeast Hospice has provided loving, caring support for terminally ill patients of all ages and their families. Southeast Hospice currently serves southeast Missouri counties of: Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Perry, Scott, Stoddard, Mississippi and New Madrid.

Tickets are on sale now at the Southeast Hospital Volunteer Services office and the SoutheastHEALTH Foundation office. For more information, contact the Foundation at 573-986-6622 or mburton@sehealth.org.
