These events include the Hospice Foundation Golf Scramble in September, Trees of Life in Monterey, Salinas, Hollister and King City in December. We also organize the Gobblers and Gifts prize drawing in the fall, and the Foundation’s Annual Meeting, as well as educational seminars and other events.

    Volunteers are always welcome to serve as event chairs or on organizing committees, to assist in the Foundation office with data entry, invitation assembly or with other mailings. Assistance is also welcome with registering guests at events, serving as greeters, and with a variety of other activities or clerical duties. You may even have special skills, such as in computer technology or marketing, that you would like to offer. As a volunteer, you’ll enjoy the camaraderie with staff and others, and you’ll be helping to support hospice care in our community.
