The 15th annual Senator Bob Hooper House Hospice Regatta will be held on Saturday, June 7, at the Concord Point Lighthouse in Havre de Grace.
All proceeds will benefit the Senator Bob Hooper House, an assisted living community near Bel Air specializing in hospice care and a member of University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health.
The regatta raised more than $110,000 last year for hospice services in Harford County. Such services are essential for terminally ill patients and their families, offering support and compassion in dealing with issues associated with end of life care.
Individual tickets cost $75, and there are sponsorship opportunities at many different levels. For more information, contact Donna Tower Lenzner at The Upper Chesapeake Foundation, 443-643-3460 or uchfoundation.org.
