Blue Diamond Celebration, Executive Caterers at Landerhaven

In celebration of our 40th anniversary, the Blue Diamond Celebration presented by Huntington Bank will bring together all our friends, business partners and ambassadors in the community for an elegant, fun-filled evening of dinner, drinks, auctions and much more in support of our agency.

We will be honoring:

Keith A. Ashmus - Dame Cicely Saunders Blue Diamond Award
Dame Cicely Saunders founded the modern hospice movement. With similar vision, activism and spirit of mission, Keith Ashmus has been a strong advocate for hospice for more than 40 years. Keith gained national recognition in 1982 for establishing the Hospice Lawyer Volunteer Program to bring free legal services to seriously ill patients. Whether assisting a patient with his will at the bedside or advising the Board of Directors in the strategic planning process, Keith is still an active, loyal and beloved volunteer at Hospice of the Western Reserve.

The Elisabeth Severance Prentiss Foundation- Blue Diamond Philanthropy Award
The Elisabeth Severance Prentiss Foundation has made an indelible impact on healthcare in Cleveland, and especially on Hospice of the Western Reserve. At every milestone, the Foundation generously supported HWR’s ambitious vision - from the groundbreaking of the first Hospice House in northeast Ohio, to the establishment of a bereavement center that welcomes all who are grieving, to construction of the state-of-the-art Ames Family Hospice House. The Elisabeth Severance Prentiss Foundation has made it possible for HWR to provide a home-away-from-home, compassionate end-of-life care, and healing grief support for many.

Mark your calendars and be sure to join us for this very special 40th anniversary fundraiser!  More details will be announced soon.
