Trustbridge Hospice Foundation hosts Inaugural Sunset Soiree

A One-of-A-Kind Farm to Table Experience

Jupiter, FL – On Thursday, April 27, guests raised their glasses and raised funds to support Trustbridge Hospice Foundation.  The sold-out event was held at Lady Jane Ranch in Jupiter, FL.   

The event began with sunset cocktails and a silent auction. After cocktail hour, celebrity guest emcee Chef Ben Robinson of Bravo’s Below Deck kicked off the main event, where guests were treated to a tapas-style dinner from some of the area’s top restaurants.    

Following dinner, guests participated in a live auction offering a private tour of the Save the Chimps Sanctuary and weeklong stay in a private home in Nantucket. The event raised over $136,000 to benefit Trustbridge Hospice Foundation, which provides funding for the extraordinary programs and services of Trustbridge, such as the Physician Fellowship and Nurse Internship programs.       

“Seeing this event come to light or should I say at sunset was a true testament to the belief this community has in Trustbridge, our local non-profit hospice provider. It is humbling to me to hear the countless ways our mission impacts patients and families at one of the most vulnerable times in their lives.  It is a privilege to serve them and this 40-year legacy of compassion and care.”  Bill Quinn, Dignity Memorial & Trustbridge Chairman.

Members of the Sunset Soiree host committee are hometown leaders who believe in ensuring the highest level of care are made possible in their local community, including Dari and Billy Bowman; Beth and Jason Brown; JoAnn and Kevin Dilallo; Jeanine and Stuart Klein; Tanya and Keith Lorigan; Matt Owen; and Cathy and Bill Quinn.  The event was generously sponsored by Jimmy Borynack and Adolfo Zaralegui, Dignity Memorial, Jupiter Magazine & Universal Health Services/Alan B. Miller Medical Center.
