Our Hospice fish fry raises record $9k; Fair Oaks cookie sales continue

Our Hospice of South Central Indiana says that Friday’s fish fry at the American Legion Post in Columbus raised $9,000, a record amount.

Since 2015, the Legion Post 24 has raised more than $27,000 for the hospice. Hospice President Laura Leonard thanked the post and Columbus Silgas, which donated $500 to offset expenses for the fish fry.

The normal Labor Day weekend concert fundraiser held at Mill Race Park by Our Hospice, has been canceled but the hospice will be holding cookie, T-shirt and raffle ticket sales in the former Fair Oaks Mall parking lot over the next few days to support the not-for-profit group.

Today and Thursday, you can purchase fresh baked cookies or T-shirts in the Fair Oaks Mall parking lot from 11 to 1 and from 4 to 6 each day. You get three cookies for a donation or three dozen boxed for a minimum $15 donation. T-shirts are $20.

You can purchase $10 raffle tickets for a chance to win $10,000 at the Fair Oaks Mall events this week, from any employee or on Saturday in front of the hospice center. You can also purchase the tickets online until 5 p.m. Saturday afternoon at www.crh.org/hospiceraffle.

The raffle will be held at 7 in the evening on Saturday. Winners will be notified by phone and results will also be posted on the Our Hospice Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/OurHospice) and Instagram pages (https://www.instagram.com/OurHospice.)
