Our Hospice raises $124k from Labor Day weekend free concert

Labor Day weekend’s free concert to benefit Our Hospice of South Central Indiana raised $124,000 for the agency according to organizers.

The concert drew about 7,500 people to Mill Race Park to see the headlining act of 80s rockers Survivor.

Laura Leonard, president of the hospice, said the goal was to raise $125,000 but the slightly lower amount was still being counted as a success. That is because the hospice raised the fundraising goal this year.

She said 4,779 raffle tickets were sold for the event. Money was also raised through sponsors including title sponsor Faurecia, and partnering sponsor, Columbus Regional Hospital.

Raffle winners were:

  • $10,000 Grand Prize – Marvin Scott
  • $500 – Mike Bradshaw
  • $250 – Rebekah and Brian Walsh
  • $150 – Nicolette Bradshaw
  • $100 – Betsy Grant

The money raised will help support the care of dying patients and their families. This was the 33rd year for the concert series.
