HomeCare Matters Home Health and Hospice will hold their largest fundraising event of the year, the 17th annual Celebrity Waiter Dinner and Auction, April 21st, 6:30pm at the Crawford County Fairgrounds, 610 Whetstone St., Bucyrus, Ohio. This year marks HomeCare Matters 30th anniversary of providing Home Health and 25th of Hospice care.

     The Celebrity Waiter Dinner and Auction raises money to provide home health and hospice care for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. All proceeds from the event benefit HomeCare Matters direct patient care by helping purchase much needed medicine, equipment, medical supplies, and bereavement services.

     “Our theme is a “A Starr, Starry Night” to reflect the stars that are our patients, staff and community” said Dean Heid, HomeCare Matters Development and Marketing Coordinator. “It’s truly a humbling experience to know that the support of the individuals in the areas we serve have helped us reach this pearl and silver milestone.”

      Entertainment will consist of a special version of the Crawford Theatre Company’s “Speak Easy” Show, a tribute to former Bucyrus Mayor and longtime HomeCare Matters supporter Roger Moore, a silent auction, a live auction with auctioneer Craig A. Miley and a celebratory dinner from Special Occasions Catering of Upper Sandusky.

     “We are currently looking for auction donors, sponsors, and waiters. Businesses and organizations are already coming up with ideas on how they will decorate their tables,” said Dean Heid. “Last year with the community’s support, we raised just over $12,000. We hope everyone will celebrate our anniversaries with us and help us continue to provide care to the less fortunate and those whose insurance or medical coverage has denied them the items they need to keep comfortable, in control and calm.”

     $15 tickets are available by calling 1-419-468-7985, 1-800-4 Nurses or by clicking on homecarematters.org. For donation, sponsorships and waiter opportunities, email Dean Heid directly at hcmmarketing@rrohio.com.
