Hospice of the Valley, a division of HomeCare & Hospice of the Valley, will hold a fundraiser on Saturday, Aug. 25, at the Dallenbach Ranch just outside of Basalt.”We’re the only nonprofit provider of hospice in the valley,” said Executive Director Markey Butler, R.N., MHSA. “We serve anyone who needs care regardless of their ability to pay. This helps keep hospice services available to everyone in our community.”Alpine Bank and Wally and Peppy Dallenbach are the presenting sponsors for the second annual “Cowboy & Cowgirl Golf,” an event that invites golfers, non-golfers, and those of all ages and abilities to smack golf balls around a golf course set around the Dallenbach Ranch. Ken Everett, golf pro at the Snowmass Club, designed the course layout that will lead golfers around the stunning views and challenging terrain at the ranch.”This is not your typical golf outing. We have abandoned all golf etiquette rules,” said event chair Mary Gould. “So leave your clubs, golf shoes, and polo shirt at home, grab your cowboy garb, and come help us raise money for Hospice of the Valley.”All proceeds from the event, including silent auction items, go directly towards providing hospice services in the community.The event is also listed on http://www.causes.com, one of the largest applications on Facebook, which allows hospice supporters to create a birthday, anniversary or memorial wish in honor of hospice.Hospice of the Valley serves the terminally ill and their families in the Roaring Fork, Colorado, Crystal, and Eagle River valleys.For more information on the event, sponsorship opportunities, or to R.S.V.P., visit http://www.hchotv.org, call (970) 927-6650, or email info@hchotv.org. Tickets are $125 for golf and dinner or $100 for dinner only. Golf starts at 3 p.m. and cocktails begin at 5 p.m.
