AAHA! An Auction of Heirlooms and Art, raised a record-breaking amount of more than $350,000 for Hospice of the Valley at its event on March 3 at the Arizona Biltmore. More than 350 guests attended, bidding on art and one-of-a-kind experiences through the silent and live auctions.
The funds raised included nearly $140,000 to support a soon-to-be-built Dementia Care and Education Campus in Phoenix to care for people at all stages of dementia and to bring people together to share best practices in dementia care.
Hospice of the Valley is a nonprofit that was founded in 1977 to provide end-of-life care. The organization now provides home care for those with serious and chronic illnesses who aren’t yet ready for hospice.
Last year, the agency provided care to more than 18,000 patients and their families.
