National Hospice Foundation Gala to be a Sparkling Celebration
Date:3/24/2009

Annual Awards will Honor Significant Achievement

ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Hospice Foundation will hold its fifth annual gala - Bricks and Diamonds - on Friday, April 24, 2009, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. The event applauds those who have advanced hospice and palliative care in an extraordinary way and helped society better understand the journey at life's end. Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews and The Chris Matthews Show on NBC, will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

NHF will honor Dr. Forrest Church, a noted author and Minister of Public Theology at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in New York City, with the Buchwald Spirit Award for Public Awareness. The National Hospice Foundation's Humanitarian Leadership Award will be presented to Jamie and Karen Moyer of The Moyer Foundation for their dedication to grieving children and teens through Camp Erin, a national network of bereavement camps. And the Public Policy Award will recognize the efforts of members of the United States Congress who are leading the charge to protect hospice support - Senators Arlen Specter (PA) and Tom Harkin (IA), Congressman Chris Van Hollen (MD) and former Congressman Jim Ramstad, now a resident fellow at Harvard University's Kennedy School.

The evening includes dinner and dancing, with a kick-off cocktail reception hosted by Emerald Sponsor Hospice Pharmacia. A sparkling silent auction is also planned, featuring traditional auction packages, highlighted by a collection of estate, gently used and one-of-a-kind jewelry.

"The National Hospice Foundation is committed to compassionate care at the end of life. Our annual gala celebrates this mission, attracting more than 700 guests from across the country," said J. Donald Schumacher, president of NHF.
