Lewiston, Maine 7.7.15 - The volunteers that make up Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice's (AHCH) Autumn Night Out Planning Committee have already begun preparations and are working on some new additions to the 2015 event. "We're really excited about some of the new ideas we're coming up with," said Cyndi Robbins, Chair of the Autumn Night Out Planning Committee and owner of Poland Spring Resort and Golf. "We want to keep it fresh and exciting and continually remind our guests why raising money for AHCH's Hospice program is so important."
Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice's (AHCH) 12th Annual Autumn Night Out Silent Auction and Gala event is set to be held on Friday October 23rd. The fundraiser will be held at Poland Spring Resort in Poland, Maine with proceeds benefiting AHCH's Hospice Program. The evening begins at 6:00pm with hors d'oeuvres, a wine and beer tasting, silent auction bidding and live music during the cocktail hour. Guests are then treated to dinner, live auction bidding and special entertainment, to be announced. Norm Karkos from WMTW News 8 will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Robbins said "Changes in funding and reimbursements continue to challenge local, non-profit organizations like AHCH. Events like Autumn Night Out are imperative to AHCH's mission to never turn a patient away because of inability to pay. The funds raised via Autumn Night Out mean that every person needing hospice services is cared for, no matter what." The evening will also include some special touches to celebrate the agency's 10 year anniversary since opening their Hospice House on Stetson Road in Auburn in 2005.
