The 23rd annual Hospice Benefit and Auction was host to a large crowd on Friday evening at the Tyler Golf Club. A total of 225 meals of roast beef and trimmings were provided to ticketholders for the event. Initial estimates put the total dollars raised at over $20,000.
Entertainment for the evening was provided by Dr. Terry Parr on piano, as well as a trio called the Red Hat Gypsies, that consisted of Sue Schreier, James VanderWaal and Rick Johnson.
