PUTNAM, CT
–Day Kimball Hospital’s 4th Annual Twilight in the Country event raised more than $33,000 to be equally distributed between Day Kimball HomeCare, Hospice & Palliative Care of Northeastern Connecticut and Day Kimball HomeMakers. This impressive tally brings the four-year event total to more than $100,500, all of which is being used to assist local individuals and families needing services from these three significant organizations.

More than 200 guests strolled Greystone Farm in Thompson, CT while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and wine, and listening to the Anders Vercelli Jazz Trio. The use of the historic farm is generously donated and hosted each year by owners Robert and Susan Vincent. Following the stroll, guests were ushered to their seats for a live melodic performance by the American Band. The American Band dates back to 1837 and is comprised of more than 50 musicians whose repertoire ranges from classical to whimsical.

Tori Bates, Day Kimball Healthcare’s event manager said, “Our community is constantly demonstrating its support and generosity to Day Kimball Healthcare’s many important organizations. This year, the contributions of the hundreds of people who attended Twilight in the Country truly make a difference in the lives of thousands through the services of Day Kimball HomeCare, Hospice & Palliative Care of Northeastern Connecticut and Day Kimball HomeMakers. I am honored to be a part of such a special evening.”

Due to generous local business donations, a raffle was held in the hospital prior to the event and a silent auction was held at the event. Proceeds of both contributed to the funds raised for these three organizations. Day Kimball HomeCare, Hospice & Palliative Care of Northeastern Connecticut and Day Kimball HomeMakers offer skilled in-home healthcare, personal support services and compassionate end-of-life care for patients and their families. Last year alone, these organizations served nearly 40,000 community members within Day Kimball Healthcare’s 13-town service area.
