Special Events Support

On Thursday, April 11 diners from across Tampa Bay helped raise money for EPIC (Empath Partners in Care) through the Dining Out for Life international event. Local participating restaurants’ and tableside donations brought in $47,800 to support EPIC’s services for those living with or affected by HIV in our community. Special thanks to The Frog Pond in St. Pete and Redington Beach, our top fundraising restaurants donating more than $3,100 of proceeds. Neptune’s in Gulfport donated more than $2,000 of proceeds and an additional $2,095 from tableside gifts.

On Saturday, May 4 the 18th Annual Suncoast Hospice Beach Stroll was held on beautiful Clearwater Beach. Palm Pavilion hosted the morning concluding with a special musical performance by the Police Athletic League’s Drumline. With the support of our sponsors, teams, walkers and community, we were able to raise more than $55,227.

Thank you to Palm Pavilion for your support. A special thank-you to our top sponsors: Milkey Family Foundation, Infuserve America and Vology. Congratulations to our top teams: Peanuts Pets, EEI Egrets and the Leo Chicks and Dude. And congratulations to our top individuals: Mari Campbell, Shari White and Sue Englander.
