Sangre de Cristo Hospice and Palliative Care East was opened in the fall of 2012, since that time they have cared for nearly 50 patients. Hospice Care is not strictly for terminal patients, they assist with daily chores for people who might be in need of temporary assistance.

You can support them by donating items that can go toward the live auction. Those items can be delivered to the office located at 124 W. Cranston.

Bring your own chair, come on out to the first annual Hoofin' it 4 Hospice Rodeo and show your support for a worthy cause.
