The Friends of Hospice is the Hospice of the Calumet Area fundraising auxiliary. Through warm, congenial friendship and fundraising, these local women volunteer their time and talent to support our caring mission: serving individuals and families facing life-limiting illnesses.

Membership includes almost 200 supporters who live throughout northwest Indiana and neighboring Illinois communities, with contributions through the years totaling more than $1,000,000!

The Friends of Hospice host four fundraising events each year.  In February, the Friends and Fashion Style Show, in May, Seeds of Hope, at which hundreds of guests enjoy dinner, and in October, we hold our popular Mum’s the Word luncheon.  Additionally, our Hospice Artisans present the Holiday Gift Boutique in November.
