5th Annual Wings of Hope Community Event – May 18, 2014
5th Annual Wings of Hope Community Celebration
On Sunday, May 18, more than 575 community members—of all ages—released butterflies in memory of friends and family who left a lasting impact at the 5th annual Wings of Hope celebration. The hope filled events were held at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido and the Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa. After the release, guests gathered for a reception and the opportunity to reconnect with members of their care team. Bereavement counselors from the Center for Compassionate Care were also available to offer comfort and support to those in need.
Proceeds from sponsorships and donations to Wings of Hope amounted to nearly $56,000, benefiting end-of-life patient care and grief support services offered by The Elizabeth Hospice and Center for Compassionate Care.
