The 2011 Hospice Regatta is being held August 19-20, hosted by Rochester YC.
Over the past 12 years, the Regatta has raised more than $550,000 to support improvement and expansion of Hospice services, including creation of Lifetime Care’s Hildebrandt Hospice Care Center.
You may not realize it, but there’s a fun side to hospice too. It comes out every once in a while, and when it does, look out!
Tomorrow night is one of those times. Each year we have a party around the time of the Lake Norman Hospice Regatta. It’s our one late-night event that puts us home pleasantly exhausted (feeling all young and crazy again), at a decidedly unearly hour.
It’s a night of entertainment, excellent food and libations, and conniving strategy. Where does the conniving part come in? Well, we’ve got both live and silent auctions and, once you get your heart set on one of the many awesome items up for grabs, you will do whatever it takes to make it yours.
You will keep tabs on your competition who will be bidding for your silent auction item (the one you saw when you walked in the door and simply knew that fate had left it there just for you). You will go back and subsequently make more bids. And when the warning comes that there are only minutes left to finalize bids, you will hover over your item like a mama bird protecting her nest. It will get nutty and, man, you will have a good time!
So what will you be hovering over this year? The real question is what will you not? We have a fabulous vacation to Royal Palm Beach Resort in St. Maarten, and accommodations at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, the Harbourview Inn in Charleston, and the Ritz-Carlton in Atlanta. You can bid on a Bonefish Grill gift basket (which includes dinner for eight!), personal chef services, beautiful works of art, jewelry, and so much more.
So put on your fancy cocktail duds (no jeans allowed at this shindig!) and join us at The Peninsula Club on Lake Norman tomorrow night. Sounds like a party you don’t want to miss, right? Tickets for all of this fun are a bargain at $85 and include an expansive dinner and dessert buffet, music, entertainment, and, of course, the auctions.
By definition, we can’t feel young and crazy unless the party people show up. That’s you. Tomorrow night, it will be your turn to go home pleasantly exhausted. Because you will. And if you’re lucky, you’ll go home with a bunch of loot in tow! Better start practicing your hovering.–Andrea Powell
Proceeds from the Lake Norman Hospice Regatta Party benefit Hospice & Palliative Care Lake Norman, a regional office of Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region. The evening begins at 6:30 pm and lasts until 11pm. For more information, or to purchase your tickets online, visit our website, hpccr.org.
