Choice Financial Raises Over $25,000 for Altru’s Hospice
Heroes for Hospice was held on July 17, 2018 at Choice Financial in Grand Forks. An estimated 600 people attended, raising $25,683 for Altru’s Hospice. Attendees of the lunch enjoyed a feast provided by Red Pepper, Popolino’s Pizza and O’ For Heaven’s Cakes. The event also featured a memorial wall where guests were invited to remember their loved ones.
“We couldn’t be happier with the support the community has shown for our Heroes for Hospice fundraiser,” Chris Johnson, Grand Forks Market President for Choice Financial said. “Altru’s Hospice is a fantastic organization that helps so many people during times when they need it most. We are delighted to be able support them.”
The Heroes for Hospice fundraiser helps provide funding for Altru’s Hospice to offer end-of-life care for terminally ill patients and support for their families.
The first Hospice event was held in 2013 in Fargo. Since then, Choice Financial has held hospice fundraising events across North Dakota in Fargo, Dickinson, Bismarck, and now Grand Forks. Since 2013, Choice Financial has raised over $750,000 for four Hospice organizations (Hospice of the Red River Valley, Sanford Hospice, CHI Health at Home Hospice and Altru’s Hospice) across North Dakota.
