Welcome to New York - Start Spreading the News

Hi, I am Jodee Hoover, Executive Director for the Richard Murphy Hospice Foundation. We are excited about joining our community to raise money for the The Richard Murphy Hospice House, the 3 Bedroom home, located at 1109 South Chestnut Street in Hammond. 

Join us for a night filled with delicious cuisine from local restaurants and libations from The Crescent Bar. Guests will enjoy lively entertainment from our featured band – After Party. In addition, we invite guests to engage in the live and silent auctions as well as trying your luck with the chance to bring home a new car sponsored by Bill Hood Auto Group.  

Gala sponsorships offer guests the opportunity to engage in our Gala with each sponsorship level providing its own “New York State of Mind” amenities. A full list of available opportunities are outlined on the enclosed Sponsorship Form. If you are interested in securing a sponsorship, we recommended that you do so early due to seating limitations. 

The Richard Murphy Hospice Foundation thanks you for your commitment to the Hospice House, especially during the pandemic and a natural disaster. It is with your continued support that our annual Gala is such a successful fundraiser with 100% of the proceeds supporting the care of our patients and the daily operations of the Richard Murphy Hospice House.  

In the lyrics of Frank Sinatra, “I want to be a part of it, New York, New York.”
