More than 300 friends, families and neighbors gathered at the historic Putnam Lodge in Cross City for Fall at Putnam Lodge on Saturday, October 17 to help raise money for Haven Hospice’s unreimbursed patient care, grief support and community education programs throughout the Tri-County Area.

The event, which raised over $30,000 from sponsorship alone, included dinner catered by the Putnam Lodge, live music from the University of Florida’s all male a cappella group The Staff, and a performance from local musical artist Krista Campbell. The silent auction, which included over 70 items and raised more than $16,000, featured a beautiful necklace from Bejeweled Custom Jewelers in Chiefland.

Haven would like to thank the Dixie County Chamber of Commerce for all their support and assistance finding sponsors, auction items and attendees. A special thanks to the Putnam Lodge for hosting the event, the more than 30 volunteers for their time, the Chiefland Rotary Club, Drummond Community Bank, and all of our sponsors who helped make this event a success.
