Sisters Country beats Hospice challenge
Last updated 6/29/2021 at Noon
In just a few monthsâ€™ time, the generous residents of Sisters Country not only met but exceeded the $100,000 challenge in support of the new Hospice House at Partners In Care in Bend. As of last week, $116,035 had been donated, fully funding the Three Sisters suite, with the remainder going toward the Black Butte suite.
Partners In Care and the Sisters Challenge Team extended a very grateful thank-you to those Sisters Country residents who opened their hearts and their wallets to help provide hospice care in a state-of-the-art specialty hospital, the only one east of the Cascades. Members of the team include Chairman Bill Willitts, Fran Willis, Rob Corrigan, Kevin Miller, Donna Lipscomb, John Griffith, and Sue Stafford.
On Friday, June 18, three members of The Roundhouse Foundation staff were given a tour of the new facility by Director of Development and Communications Marlene Carlson, accompanied by Eric Alexander, executive director of Partners In Care, and Kristie Hammond, RN, who will be involved with the new Hospice House. The Roundhouse Foundation Executive Director and Trustee Erin Borla was accompanied by foundation staff members Chaney Coman, grants manager and office coordinator; and Alex Powell, grants program officer (see related story).
