Local Riders Raise Money for Haven Hospice
DeLand, Florida (January 6, 2015) – The inaugural Show Your Hand for Haven Hospice Poker Ride raised more than $2,800 in December 2014 to benefit patients and families of Haven Hospice in Volusia county and the surrounding areas.
More than 60 riders participated in the ride which winded through seven miles of woods and wildlife at the Lake George Conservation area. First place winner of the poker ride was Shelly Howard. The rider who raised the most donations for Haven before and during the event was Betty Beck.
All proceeds benefit the unreimbursed programs and services provided by Haven Hospice to the patients, families and the communities it serves. Haven would like thank Event Planner Bert Wright, Sherilee DiCarlo for her photography, Carla Congdon for creating the event T-shirts and all other supporters of the Show Your Hand Poker Ride.
