BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Hospice Brazos Valley hosted it’s annual Hospice Happening fundraiser Saturday at the Brazos County Expo Center. The event was canceled last year due to COVID-19.

This is the organization’s primary fundraiser, which helps to support patient medications, medical supplies, equipment and caregiver transportation. The event hosted 500-600 guests, according to the organization’s president and CEO Lisa McNair. While donating, guests enjoyed food, drinks, casino games, a silent auction, a photo booth and live music from the Texas Unlimited Band.

McNair said the money raised Saturday helps ensure stress-free care for patients, their families and caregivers.

“Hospice is not about dying. Hospice is about helping people live and helping people live maybe with a terminal illness or a situation that is difficult to manage, and we want to come in and make that journey easier,” McNair said.
