Courtney Markovich,
Friends of Hospice President

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


Membership includes more than 200 supporters who live throughout Northwest Indiana and neighboring Illinois communities, with contributions through the years totaling more than $1,500,000!


The Friends of Hospice has several fundraising events each year:


  • July 18, 2024 - The Art & Garden Party is held in the spectacular gardens of the Zeck Family, generous supporters of our Hospice mission.  Guests can stroll the lovely gardens while enjoying a glass of wine, a tasty appetizer and the sounds of the lyrical flutes. 


  • September 15, 2024 - Butterflies in the Park – A Butterfly Hunt & Cherishing Life Fest is a family friendly event where young and young at heart search for beautifully handcrafted butterflies in a park setting, enjoy a picnic buffet and enjoy some fun games and fellowship.


  • November 9, 2024 - Kick-off the holiday shopping season with the Hospice Artisans at the annual Holiday Market. Shop beautifully hand crafted gift items made by local artisans. Give the gift that gives twice as 100% of the proceeds benefit Hospice of the Calumet Area.
