‘Giddy Up & Give Back’ Benefits Hospice

MORROW COUNTY – Howard Hanna JC Meyer Realtors has partnered with Hoof Hearted Brewing in Marengo to raise $2,380.76 for Ohio’s Hospice of Morrow County.

This was the second “Giddy Up & Give Back” fundraising event with all proceeds going to the Hospice of Morrow County.

Hospice team leader Irene Roski RN said: “We always appreciate the support from businesses and residents in the community.”

“We like to be community-based,” added Roski. “We are so fortunate to have the support of the people of Morrow County as we care for patients and their families.”

Chris Willford, Hospice Community Liaison, said, “The ‘Giddy Up’ event was great and we at Hospice of Morrow County appreciate all of the work of Howard Hanna, Hoof Hearted and all those who gave baskets or contributed in any way.

Howard Hanna Broker, Cheyenne Peck said she and Howard Hanna’s agents have reached out to many local businesses who have shown their support and donated items to use as prizes. Event attendees could win prizes by purchasing tickets. There was also a 50/50 draw and a silent auction.

Hospice and Peck staff gave special thanks to Hoof Hearted Brewing and Jarrod Bichon who donated their space, time and a portion of their beer sales to Hospice. She thanked the officers in her office who “did the extra mile to make the event a success.”

Peck said a member of his own family had been a patient at Morrow County Hospice.

“Morrow County Hospice touches the hearts of many families and has helped care for and support our family and friends in need,” Peck said.

Peck called it an honor to support Hospice of Morrow County and hopes the “Giddy Up & Give Back” event continues to grow each year.
