About This Fundraiser

Click your heels three times and join us for a week of fun - right at home! 

Taking place from May 9 - May 15, Hospice of Holland invites you and your family to take a virtual stroll down the yellow brick road for this week long "Wizard of Oz" themed fundraiser.

For 36 years, Hospice of Holland's spring Celebration fundraiser has brought together supporters, staff, and volunteers to celebrate the work we have done in the community while raising funds needed to continue this work. Although we won't be able to gather in person this year, we have a number of opportunities for supporters to participate throughout the week. Please view the list below to find out more.

Whether you're celebrating on the farm with Auntie Em or somewhere over the rainbow, we hope this week reminds you that there truly is ‘no place like home.’
