The Friends of Hospice recently presented Talbot Hospice with a check for $128,000 representing proceeds from the 2017 Festival of Trees. It was a stellar year for this 32nd annual fundraiser which encompasses several events beginning in September with the Men in Heels Race and culminating Thanksgiving weekend with the Homes Tour, the display of trees at the Tidewater Inn and more.

According to Talbot Hospice Executive Director Vivian Dodge, the Festival of Trees event has generously given their financial support to help defray some of the costs of providing hospice services since its inception in 1985. “In addition to financial support, the Festival enhances public awareness of Talbot Hospice and its mission to provide exceptional care for patients at the end of life and their loved ones. We are honored to have their partnership,” said Dodge.
