For 37 years, Hospice of Holland’s Celebration Gala has been a special evening for supporters, staff, and volunteers alike to gather, enjoy a grazing style dinner from local restaurants and chefs, and raise funds for our unfunded programs and services. This year, our guests will be treated to an evening of music and interactive comedy provided by Main Street Dueling Pianos! Additionally, attendees will have the chance to participate in our popular 'buy a line' silent auction, featuring numerous prize items donated by local businesses and donors.

Special thank you to our participating restaurants!

1. What is Dueling Pianos?
Dueling pianos shows make for a unique, interactive experience that is far from a typical night out. This event features two grand pianos, a back-up band, and a pair of charismatic pianists to help you sing, laugh, and dance the night away. Throughout the evening, the musicians play audience requested songs. Song requests are made through cash tips, so don't forget to bring cash! Songs may be requested for as little as $1 each. However, the more you tip, the more likely you are to hear your request. Because each show is completely request-driven, no two shows are ever the same!

2. What is the cost of tickets?
Tickets are $125 for individuals and $800 for a table of 8. Tickets may be purchased here. Sponsorship packages are also available for purchase.

3. How can I bid on auction items?
Only those in attendance will have the opportunity to participate in the bidding and raffles. Bidding will be entirely mobile this year. No more paper bid sheets! 

4. Can I register for the auction online?
Auction registration can only be done by purchasing a ticket or registering at check-in.

5. Will there be a seated dinner?
Yes. Seating is reserved in advance with your ticket purchase. A grazing style dinner will take place with a number of participating restaurants providing a variety of delicious cuisine for your dining pleasure.

6. How can I sponsor or contribute an auction item?
If you would like to sponsor a portion of the evening or contribute an item for the auction, please contact Fund Development Manager Mark Lazarock at 616.355.5561. Alternatively, see 'sponsors' section below to download sponsor benefits or purchase a sponsorship online.

7. How are proceeds used?
Proceeds from this fundraiser are not just beneficial to hospice patients and their loved ones, but essential in very meaningful ways. Funds raised will help provide important programs and services not covered by Medicare/Medicaid or other insurance, including personal protective equipment for staff (i.e., masks, gloves, gowns, face-shields, and more), disease specific care, grief services for bereaved community members, and palliative care services for those not ready for hospice.
