(7-29-20) The 2020 Hospice Gala, An Evening in Paradise scheduled to be held October 31, 2020, has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The JTD Hospital Foundation Board and the For the Love of Hospice Gala Committee believed this decision was necessary to protect the health and well-being of our guests, vendors, volunteers, and the community.

Although we won’t be gathering in person, there are ways you can still provide support to the fundraising efforts for Grand Lake Hospice.  The need to help financially support end-of-life care for hospice patients and families has not changed. Your monetary donation or purchase of a 2020 Your Choice Car Raffle Ticket, can lessen the impact that the Coronavirus has had on this fundraising effort.

The WINNER of the 2020 Your Choice Car Raffle will be drawn October 31, 2020. Each ticket is $100 and only 1,000 tickets will be sold. The winner will have their choice of any vehicle with a value of up to $45,000, from St. Marys Chrysler, Dodge, & Jeep, or a cash prize up to $30,000.

Car Raffle tickets may be purchased at St. Marys Chrysler, the JTDMH Gift Shop, by calling the JTD Hospital Foundation office at 419-394-3387, ext. 3567, or online at:

We ask you to mark your calendars now, for August 28, 2021, when we will come together again, post COVID-19, to support the fundraising efforts for patients and families needing end-of- life care through Grand Lake Hospice.”
